Sorry, but 'Sortileges' is now sold
Such a beautiful book from 1952 - sorry the photo doesn't live up to it but I am just getting to grips with my new camera...anyway, this gorgeous book is a first edition out of 551, signed, and contains over 80 black and white photos of post-war Paris and its people...so evocative of the time...
Jazz in Saint-Germain-des-Prés on the left, street lamps in the rain on the right...
Speaks for itself...
I wouldn't like to get on the wrong side of Madame La Concierge! She does look rather fierce
I love this book - the author, Francois Cali, is well known in France for travel books. This title 'Sortileges de Paris' has images from some of France's best 20th century photographers: Brassai, R. Doisneau, P. Molinard and fifteen others, capturing Paris in the fifties - a mix of chic, poverty, elegant buildings and bomb-sites...you can see more photos and the listing here.
