Jean-Marie Jonquet (Janmari) was an autistic, mute individual who lived for 25 years in the care network Fernand Deligny created at Monoblet, in the Cévennes region of France. From a young age, Janmari was offered sheets of paper and pencils, which he used to trace repetitions of broken lines and rough circles. Over time, the tracing sessions became regular. Towards the end of his life, social worker Gisèle Durand proposed Janmari to draw his patterns in a sketchbook, helping him to create frames and new forms for his gestures. The complete sketchbook is reproduced here, with commentary by Durand. Its progression is mesmerising, as it closely follows the rhythm of life.
