the occasion for the drawing reproduced here also happens to be a familial one: Gilles Deleuze, his wife Fanny, and their children Julien, age ten, and emilie, eight, meet around a table to inscribe a copy of AntiOedipus to Michel Foucault. Deleuze has written a few words: “For Michel, admiration and affection, and for shared causes, intolerably, where i will follow you.” Fanny, who seems to be having fun, signs the page “schizophrenically.” hard to tell whether Guattari was there with them, or whether he added his illegible initials later—no matter how hard Deleuze tried to include him, Guattari never quite fit into the story. the children take a box of felt-tipped markers and draw pictures: an exploding volcano sending terrified women and children fleeing their homes in search of safety; a fisherman sitting tranquilly, having a drink, oblivious to the chaos just beneath the surface, the danger overhead. in this inscription we see traces of a friendship. or to be more precise: traces of fountain pens and felt markers that attest to a friendship, which, sadly, was nearing its end.
