LE CINÉMA BOOK CLUB

We invited actors, directors, musicians, artists, curators, writers, and friends to send a photo of a film-related book they love. Some photographed their bibles, some what they had taken on the road, others couldn’t make up their minds. Here’s our first edition of Le Cinéma Book Club. Special thanks to everyone who sent a book.

The classic FETISH border appears for the first time."
