Salões de Paris

  • Before becoming the renowned author, Marcel Proust wrote worldly chronicles in several newspapers and magazines describing the salons of the upper bourgeoisie, providing him with copious material for "In Search of Lost Time". A collection of 21 essays originally published in Parisian newspapers and short-lived magazines were specially selected for the Brazilian edition. The idea was to honour and bring readers back to the Belle Époque with gold, hot-stamped ornamentation and gilded edges. Bodonian binding was used to make it easier to open and the gilding edges were also meant to assure book preservation. In contrast to the outside, the internal pages were designed to be the most silent as possible.
