172 pp., 4 full colour plates, including one double page by Marc Chagall. Wonderful b/w photography depicting French circus performers of the period by Bidermanas. The Cirque is the best of Bidermanas' many works, 'partly because it is such as splendid book object'. The photos are 'affectionate and nostalgic, but also deeply melancholic', transforming cliché into 'something profound, moving and extraordinary' (Parr & Badger).Parr & Badger, I, 222. Lovely bright and clean copy without the glassine cover.
