Due to the autobiographical nature of the photographs and of the photographer's long and captivating text, I proposed a novel-like format for this book. It contains family photographs as well as photographs by Jean-Christian Bourcart, which are printed in signatures of a thinner, smoother paper than the signatures presenting the text.
