The Paris book by Marian Parry( Archival Material )
4 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 20 libraries worldwide
In 1952 Ben Shahn said to Marian Parry, "Marian, make the most beautiful book you can and I'll take it to Curt Valentin." She made The Paris Book, which she had conceived of sometime prior to this prompting, and as promised, the book was presented to Curt Valentin who was moved to publish it. Mr. Valentin, who had published several significant, limited edition books in which the writings of poets and novelists were accompanied by illustrations made by contemporary artists, passed away the following year and The Paris Book was never published. Un-Gyve will reproduce this most beautiful book of watercolours in their exquisite detail exactly as was intended. The Paris Book represents Marian Parry's affinity for the city in which she spent the first years of childhood; twenty extraordinary illustrations accompanied by her own hand-lettered prose -- the story of "an odd bird" and his discovery of Paris. --
