Saul Bass & Henri
I have received my copy of Henri’s Walk to Paris, illustrated by Saul Bass, story by Leonore Klein.
This is the only children’s book ever illustrated by Saul Bass, first published in 1962. Prior to this book being re-printed in January 2012, copies of this book have been going for hundreds of dollars.
Henri’s Walk to Paris is the story of a young boy who lives in Reboul, France, who dreams of going to Paris. One day, after reading a book about Paris, he decides to pack a lunch and head for the city.
Filled with the simple, colourful and bold shapes that Bass is recognised for, If you like the work of Saul Bass, this book should be in your collection.
