images may be added again at some stage - too many images "stolen" and used uncredited without any notice. Will rethink the whole project - password protected access may be an option, paid subscribing another or taking it completly offline also thinkable. But still undecided...

Introduction by Fernand Léger.

"This revolutionary work which introduced Moï Ver to the world is a striking tour de force of photomontage utilizing Bauhaus style photography and design. Its 80 pages of avant-garde photomontages evoke a modern form of Paris through his visualizations.

The method in which Moï Ver chose to present his material, in its kaleidoscopic layering and frenzied repetitiveness, emphasizes an experimental approach to picture-construction. In this sense, Paris remains the author's quintessential avant-garde book object.

The jacket's front cover superimposes factory smokestacks upon a classic stone colonnade, thus setting up familiar juxtapositions: art and industry, antique and modern, beauty and banality.

Moï Ver's Paris is a metropolis pulsating with fast-paced daily life, moving almost out of control. Cobblestone streets, bustling crowds, facades, railway tracks, bridges, the glittering river, and countless monuments shift and shatter here" (Andrew Roth: "The Book of 101 Books," pp. 70-71).
