About This Item

New York: J.J. Augustin , 1945. 8vo, black-lettered tan cloth. Pictorial dust jacket designed by Alexis Brodovitch. Book is fine. Dust jacket is chipped at all edges and its spine is detached from the front panel. With 103 black and white photogravure plates, some double page. Inscribed twice by Kertesz: the first inscription on front free endpaper, dated 12/24/45, and the second on half-title, "Happy birthday to my friend - - with trembling hand" dated 5/11/81. From the dust jacket: " A day in the life of a man who has a profound love of Paris...probing the secret of the city's humanity, poetry, endless beauty". An icon of the photobook. Parr and Badge, The Photobook, A History, Vol.1, page 200: "the best of his humanist documentary imagery." Andrew Roth, Seminal Photograph Books of the Twentieth Century: "... a leisurely understated design that allows for double spreads, shrewd juxtapositions, and unexpectedly grand expanses of white space for this small format.". Inscribed Twice. Cloth. Fine/Chipped, Spine Detached. 8vo.
