Editorial Reviews

Review

"...a beautiful photo display with a double gatefold cover and a series of visual treasures." -- Bookwatch

From the Back Cover

"These wonderful signs are beautifully and evocatively shown and written about—something that served an ordinary purpose became a craft." —Sara Midda

"When Steven Rothfeld turns his eye to France, there is no stopping his genius." —Patricia Wells

In Entrez, the fairytale called France reveals her magic in the smallest of details: a street sign, a menu board, an awning over a shop window.

This book begins with a marvelous gimmick--the cover opens like the shutters of a window--but the contents far transcend this appealing trick. Rothfeld's photographs capture the beauty and sadness of old signs; they also reveal the pleasure of a well-composed artwork. Equally impressive, Aciman's text is lyrical and effective. It does a terrific job of not simply describing the photographs but instead giving a quick, sharp insight that makes you look at the photo in a new way. This is a truly rewarding book.

This book offers us a walk through French streets, we are shown the signs on the streets, the shops, the doors. The photos are beautiful and the text adds meaning to our discoveries without ever taking too much place. I have lived in France and this book brought it all back.

This book brought me back to the streets of the France I know. It is a perfect book to give as a present, the photos are excellent, the text is discrete and often brings a smile... the whole book is a delightful walk throughh the streets of France and a gentle and fun exploration of French life.

I was disappointed with the book. I was expecting the book to have pictures of many beautiful wrought iron signs that are common in France. However, it only had one. Most of the pictures are plain text signs.
