Les Fleurs Du Mal

Paris: Editions De La Maison Française, 1947. Dignimont, Andre. Hardcover. 225 pages. 28.5 x 23 cm. Limited edition, copy 111 of 500. Color illustrations by Andre Dignimont and engraved on wood in colors by Gerard Angiolini. Text in French. Andre Dignimont, in a career spanning over four decades, primarily worked in illustrating books and theatre decoration. He formed a distinct personal style using washes of watercolor incorporated into pen and ink. This style perfectly evokes the emotions of this collection of Baudelaire's poetry which expresses the changing nature of beauty in modern, industrializing Paris during the 19th century and coined the term modernité (modernity) to designate the fleeting, ephemeral experience of life in an urban metropolis. Bookplate. Loose as issued in orig. stiff wrappers front cover lettered in red, housed in fine board chemise in fine matching slipcase. Item #22814
