J'aime...

Some images from a series of French art books put out by Jean-Pierre Moulin and Yvan Dalain in the early 60s. There are twelve books in all: J'aime le cinéma, J'aime l'opéra, J'aime marionettes, J'aime théâtre, J'aime dessin animé, J'aime strip-tease, and so on. Most of the pics below are from J'aime la mime and J'aime la danse. Photography by Monique Jacot and Jeanloup Sieff. The first image tells an interesting story. I want to know more about the difficult, visionary choreographer.

  4. I'll check which book it is when I get back from work -- I think it's J'aime la danse but I'm not sure. The cover art looks great!

  5. It's J'aime la Mime by Jean Dorcy and Monique Jocot (Editions Rencontre). If you want I can try to make a better scan?
