        DESCRIPTION:
        This is one of the most astonishing books ever published. Depicting a Paris of yesteryear, page upon page is haunting, ethereal, a joy to behold. You feel the atmosphere every time you turn the page; it's like your on the shoulder of the photographer watching him capture the ghosts of time gone by. What happened to the ghostly figures in his photographs? They will all be in their graves now, death has shaked the worries from their hair, but they live on forever in the art of Atget.

        It's been my favourite book for years and the scans below show why. It's such a massive book that the scans below only make up a few pictures from the book (and most are details from the actual photographs) but they give you a flavour of what I mean. The scans are deliberately low quality; you have to view the book to really appreciate why I rate it so highly.

        Superbly produced monograph on the influential French photographer. Volume 2 of a 4 volume set. 190 pages, illustrations, mostly in sepia.


        DESCRIPTION (INNER FLAP):
        Atget lived from 1857 to 1927. Though in his own lifetime he remained largely unknown, his photographs have since influenced a generation of photographers.

        In this collection of pictures of the city he loved, Atget shows us busy shopfronts and imposing domestic facades, haunting alleyways and quiet atmospheric interiors, as well as small architectural details and ornaments. He also offers his view of the familiar Parisian landmarks. It was the photography of Paris which formed his specialization for most of his career.

        From the monumental Atget archive at The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the very best work has been selected for definitive publication. The plates are printed in three-impression reproduction to achieve the highest possible fidelity to the remarkable tones of the originals.


        CONDITION:
        Good - Ex-library book and cover has wear in places. Only 1 in stock. As per scans below. The book is getting harder and harder to find but a direct link to the book's amazon page is here. A less expensive book, about as half as good (the reproductions are good but nowhere near as good as these) but well worth the money it costs is the Taschen Atget: Paris book.
