Poésie de mots inconnus is a book from 1949 made by Ilia Zdanevich (aka ILIAZD) after he moved to France from Georgia. It features Russian and Italian futurists, German dadaists, surrealists, and people from other avant-garde movements (Picasso, Braque, Matisse, Miró, Magnelli, etc). It was a reaction against lettrism, which ILIAZD saw as mediocre mimicry.
