A magnificent work wonderfully illustrated (and printed) by the painter Gustave Fayet (1865-1925), close to Paul Gauguin and Odilon Redon. A great collector, he was interested in painting on all kinds of surfaces, right down to wallpaper boxes and carpets. The printer's stencil work is remarkable, and it seems as if each page contains the original watercolours!
