New photo of Rimbaud surfaces

A newly-discovered photo of Arthur Rimbaud? – The  Daily Telegraph reported last week that two French booksellers discovered the photo  (see above) amongst cards and bric-a-brac at a market ‘somewhere in France.’ This would be the first known photo of Rimbaud as an adult that wasn’t blurry beyond recognition.
We had our hopes up, but…  Seems. unfortunately, that it’s most likely a hoax. Pierre Joris caught wind of  the culprit, a “crazy Rimbaldian forger” after posting this discovery to his blog, and seems to have sufficient info to support the claim – see here
