Paris Paper Show: Champerret February 13~17th


Peering in the Window Librairie de la Lune, Paris 
Brassai ca.1930s

Back to Paris in a few days for the Salon de Vieux Papier (Old Paper Show) at the Espace Champerret. Looking forward to digging through the shelves, boxes and piles of books, magazines and ephemera for "les untrouvables", unfindable treasures. More so than ever, It takes time, patience and a love of the hunt to discover anything worthwhile.

Note that there will be a last minute exhibition added to the show dedicated to "freedom of the press" as depicted in French illustrated periodicals, specifically a brief history of satirical publications, including an homage to Charlie Hebdo

Email me if you're in Paris and we can meet up for coffee or drinks. I'll be in Paris 2.10 to 2.20 and possibly after.
