Comments

Uncommon inscribed copy of Doisneau's delightful photobook, one of three titles published under Robert Delipire's short-lived imprint Collection "Huit". In 56 images, Doisneau manages to weave a multi-layered picture of daily life in Paris, depicting both the lowest and highest in society. With text supplied by Robert Giraud and Michel Ragon.
