Book Overview

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...

I love this book. I love the way it opens and everything about it. I also gave one as a gift.

This book shows a variety of signs. Anyone should enjoy viewing this if signs are of interest at all. There is a dictionary in the back for people who do not know much French. ENJOY!

a lovely book and a good idea for a present

This book brought me back to the streets of the France I know. It is a perfect book to give as a present, the photos are excellent, the text is discrete and often brings a smile... the whole book is a delightful walk throughh the streets of France and a gentle and fun exploration of French life.

like walking on the streets in France

This book offers us a walk through French streets, we are shown the signs on the streets, the shops, the doors. The photos are beautiful and the text adds meaning to our discoveries without ever taking too much place. I have lived in France and this book brought it all back.

Great Combination of Photos and Text

This book begins with a marvelous gimmick--the cover opens like the shutters of a window--but the contents far transcend this appealing trick. Rothfeld's photographs capture the beauty and sadness of old signs; they also reveal the pleasure of a well-composed artwork. Equally impressive, Aciman's text is lyrical and effective. It does a terrific job of not simply describing the photographs but instead giving a quick, sharp insight that makes you look at the photo in a new way. This is a truly rewarding book.

France's signs are captured in a beautiful photo display

France's signs are unique and here are captured in a beautiful photo display with a double gatefold cover and a series of visual treasures. Entrez: Signs of France promises to reach not only those with a special affection for France, but any art student interested in signage. A gorgeous display.
