La France Profil. Photographs by Paul Strand. Text by Claude Roy. Text in French. First edition numbered 2697. Stiff pictorial wrappers with protective glassine jacket. La Guilde du Livre, Lausanne, France, 1952.

La France Profil is one of Paul Strand's most important books, printed in exquisite gravure. "Although Roy's layout, sequencing, and inspired text for La France de Profil often seem to be at odds with Strand's exactingly composed, meditative images, the combination couldn't be more engaging. Roy's texts, many of them handwritten, cavort around the photos, commenting, celebrating, spinning their own tales. The gravure reproduction in La France de Profil was overseen by Strand. The results are superb: crisp, radiantly dark, and with an unusual depth."--Vince Aletti from The Book of 101 Books.

A beautiful, tight copy. Some wear to top and bottom of spine and corners; glassine has some minor tears, otherwise Fine.
