Henri's walk to Paris by Saul Bass & Leonore Klein
Well, how could I not have recognised the work of Saul Bass (don't worry I am truly ashamed!). It turns out that this is a pic of the cover of an original copy of the only children's book he ever designed - 'Henri's walk to Paris'. A book that he designed with Leonore Klein in 1962 and that has been out of print for many years until now.
"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."
As of last week this gorgeous little book is back on the shelves and available here.
