GIORDAN, Anne. DAVID, Hermine. FOURNIER, Alain. ~ Le Grand Meaulnes.
No.106 of 166 copies. 48 wood engravings printed in colour by Hermine David. 4to., exquisitely bound by the noted French designer bookbinder Anne Giordan in 2010 in full tan morocco with white, green, pale green, blue and light brown onlays with black tooling across both covers and spine, lettered and signed on inner dentelle in blue, blue suede pastedowns. Apart from occasional browning in the text, a extremely beautiful book in a remarkable binding.
Giordan has responded brilliantly to the colours and feel of Hermine David’s illustrations and Fournier’s text. The leather is sumptuous and the binding exquisitely executed. The book itself is a beautiful rendition of Le Grand Meaulnes, liberally illustrated with David’s attractive images.
