Limited slipcase edition of 2000 copies (#590/2000), signed by Hans Gissinger (both volumes). Text in French and English. An exceptional book filled with the exchange in words and images between photographer Hans Gissinger and chef Marc Meneau. Providing a sharp contrast to what is considered "food photography" with black and white images that reveal the often times objectionable process of haute cuisine; slaughtering animals, force-feeding geese, stuffing sausage, etc. This book about food is in no way a book about how to cook, but is rather a work of art that makes use of cooking and expresses the whole conceptual, primordial field contained in our everyday sustenance. All edges red. Orig. waxed covered cardboard. Fine, in fine cream taped edged cardboard slipcase, title and illustration in red.
