Bouquin Rare + Kashima Paradise

forthright-spirit-spine

Here is a photograph, slightly (mis)treated, of a hard to find 1951 edition of Chris Marker’s The Forthright Spirit, published by Allan Wingate Ltd., London. A man came across this book at an antique book fair in Dublin ‘about 8 years ago.’ He has done his homework and is now cognizent of the rarity of the book. He wrote me an email expressing his desire to sell it. If anyone is interested, please let me know via the contact form. For me, I was content to play a bit in Photoshop with one of the various images he sent, as I love the embossing on the spine and wanted to attempt to bring that out more…

Another note: there are several new pages on the site. One of particular interest is Marker’s very personal summation of the film Kashima Paradise made by Bénie Deswarte and Yann Le Masson in 1973 in Kashima, Japan, for which Marker is credited as the writer and narrator.
