Quatre Douzaines de Roses. Alain Mazeran, preface, Alain Woisson, text, Rainer Maria Rilke, photography.

Quatre Douzaines de Roses

Paris: Flores Editions d'Art, 2003. Hardcover. 79p., text in French, color photos on glossy stock, personal inscription signed by the photographer (also French) plus, laid in, a folded sheet with handwritten greeting and thanks from the photographer (in English) with a tipped-in original color photo print; fine first edition in green cloth boards titled in yellow, with a color photo affixed front cover.

The poetry is Rilke's "Roses". Mazeran's letter speaks of having made "12 small" books featuring his flower photography, which is fastidiously lush and consistently worthwhile (no klunky rose-exposures here!).
