Basically, Duncan shot the work of whimsical sculptor Andre Villers outdoors in someone's garden (there are photographs of him doing that). Brilliant color, funny figures making funny faces and…it takes a while to get the in-joke…most of the figures are holding cameras (!). Fun and games on the Cote d'Azur, with sly Picasso references thrown in. Duncan designed, edited, wrote, produced, and published this book himself, according to the colophon page. As if that weren't enough, the book is stamped "From the library of David Douglas Duncan/Castellasas Le Vieux" on the half-title page; over that stamp is another: "Withdrawn", and under the library stamp are his initials, apparently in marker. What to make of it? Text, what there is, in French. Fine in hardcover with Fine dust jacket.

Price = 65.00 USD
