The Ultra-Lettrist position was formed by radical Lettrists, in the 1960s, when Jean-Louis Brau, Gil Wolman and Francois Dufrêne split from the Lettrist Movement.

They issued a periodical called grammeS - Review of the Ultra-Lettriste Group, which ran for seven issues between 1957 and 1961. They used their journal to publish hypergraphics which included exchanges and discussions with the Lettrists' Poésie Nouvelle (New Poetry) and the Situationists' Situationist International.

Some Ultra-Lettrists went on to form the New Realism school while others joined the Lettrist International.
