Entrez: Signs of France Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The signs of France are a gateway into a country proud of its artistic heritage—a past that reveals itself in every nuance of daily life.

Steven Rothfeld has been recording these images for decades, capturing the milky cornflower blues and faded yellows, the hand-lettered, the neatly printed, even signs made from blown glass and wooden carvings. Their uniqueness and the beauty and sensibility of these signs reflect the visual sense of identity that is France. Rothfeld's gallery is accompanied by acclaimed author André Aciman's text, transporting the reader fully to another world.

Synopsis:

"These wonderful signs are beautifully and evocatively shown and written about—something that served an ordinary purpose became a craft." —Sara Midda

"When Steven Rothfeld turns his eye to France, there is no stopping his genius." —Patricia Wells

In Entrez, the fairytale called France reveals her magic in the smallest of details: a street sign, a menu board, an awning over a shop window.

Synopsis:

Capturing the milky cornflower blues and faded yellows of France's signs, Rothfeld captures the visual sense of identity that is France. The signs are a gateway into a country proud of its artistic heritage, a past that reveals itself in every nuance of daily life. 80 full-color photos.
