Facile - Poems by Paul Eluard Photographs by Man Ray

French language

The result of a collaboration between the poet Paul Eluard, the photographer Man Ray and the printer-publisher Guy Lévis Mano, Facile, an artists' book par excellence, is here reissued in an exceptionally well-made facsimile, faithful to the original edition.
An ode to women, in the guise of Nusch, the poet's muse and the photographer's model, Facile stages the amorous hold. Five poems by Eluard marry the sinuous contours of the female body, magnified by Man Ray.
The reissue of this collection, printed in 25 copies on Japon impérial in 1935, consists of a cover filled and illustrated with a lead composition by Guy Lévis Mano photographed by Man Ray, a photograph signed by the photographer and twelve black and white photographs reproduced in heliogravure.
This facsimile of copy number 1 of the original edition, kept at the Bibliothèque nationale de France and signed by the poet and the photographer, is accompanied by a booklet written by Nicole Boulestreau, a specialist in the work of Paul Eluard.
