Léo Ferré. Artist of Life, by Thierry Rollet

ISBN : 978-1-77076-734-8
Format : 88 pages, 6 x 9 inches
Interior Ink : Black & white
Binding : Perfect-bound Paperback

Presenting Léo Ferré allows the rediscovery of one of the greatest people of French song and poetry.

At least, this is what the general public will easily understand. The aficionados, and most of all, Leo’s « heirs » will surely know that it’s about rediscovering a true apostle of music.

Ferré was a musician at heart, especially as he also sang. But it is music that made his work multifaceted, be it poetic or literary.

Edith Piaf. Ode to the child of a vagrant, by Thierry Rollet

ISBN : 978-1-77076-726-3
Format : 66 pages, 6 x 9 inches
Interior Ink : Black & white
Binding : Perfect-bound Paperback

Few artists have marked their own eras, as well as those that come later, in the way that Édith Piaf has. People from every generation can identify with her popular songs, which make the absolute most of her virtuosic vocal skill, resonating from such a small person—who also had a very big heart.

This book is meant to be more simply a biography: it is also meant to be an in-depth analysis of an international star with an exceptional personality and incomparable musical talent. A bona fide ambassador of French folk music, she served as the icon of musical potential and achievement—both in France and around the world.
