"The photo book 'Atget: Photographe de Paris' is the perfect starting point for a series on great photography books. Published in 1930 - three years after Eugène ATGET's death - , it is now regarded as a classic that influenced generations of artists including Berenice ABBOTT and Walker EVANS. The American Photographer and photo book critic started with this title his 'Books on Books series- nearly 20 photo books has been 'republished' since then.
'Eugène Atget. Photographe de Paris' as 'Books on Books #1' reproduces all 96 collotype plates and an English translation of the Pierre Mac Orlan text on Eugène ATGET's remarkable documentation of Paris at the turn of the 19th century. The noted author, David Campany, contributes a contemporary essay called 'ATGET's Intelligent Documents' written for this volume." (publisher's note, © Errata Books, 2009)
