"Just twenty‑eight when he wrote this magical novel, he compares a poet’s love for his city to a peasant’s love for his land. A leading Surrealist writer, Aragon was keenly aware of the hidden life concealed by every object, great and small. The Peasant of Paris combines minute descriptions of scenes and objects, humorous anecdotes, and philosophical reflections: all to create a reality that goes far beyond the literal or visual. Another love affair with Paris: that of the renowned artist and photo- grapher Henri Cartier‑Bresson who chose this book to illustrate with seven enchanting lithographs of Paris and a photogravure portrait of Louis Aragon" (Publisher).
The Lithographs were pulled by Bruce Porter at his Trestle Editions studio in New York. The photogravure was printed by Jon Goodman on French-made Arjo Wiggins stock.
