Love on the Left Bank. Photographs and text by Ed van der Elsken.
Amsterdam, Andre Deutsch, 1956. 20 x 27 cm. 117 unnumbered pages.Original Hardcover with dustjacket in protective Mylar. Excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear. „A story in photographs about Paris - the Paris of the young men and girls who haunt the Left Bank. They dine on half a loaf, smoke hashish, sleep in parked cars or on benches under the plane trees, sometimes borrowing a hotel room from a luckier friend to shelter their love. Some of them write, or paint, or dance. Ed van der Elsken, a young Dutch photographer, stalked his prey for many months along the boulevards, in the cafes and under the shadow of prison walls. Whatever may happen in real life to Ann and her Mexican lover, their strange youth will be preserved ‚alive' in this book for many years." (Dustjacket of book) „Een liefdesgeschiedenis in Saint-Germain-des-Prés" (Love on the left bank)[11][12] published in 1956, and designed by Dutch graphic designer, sculptor and typographer Jurriaan (William) Schrofer (1926-1990), is recognised as a particular contribution to the photobook; the beeldroman (photonovel), an essentially self-reflexive European genre.
