Baudelaire – 悪の華


Driven by the recent exhibition of Rouault and Matisse, I cruised in the Internet to find Baudelaire’s “Les Fleurs du Mal” with the illustrations by Matisse. A gallery in the US sells the original for $7,500 and it is definitely the ultimate decision that I would rather postpone for the moment. Next was Chêne edition but it was not my choice because of its compact size. In the end, I came across with Hazan edition with red cover and the used one in good condition was available for 18 Euros (plus 10 Euros for shipment) at Amazon France. The order procedures were all in French on the display, so I had to recall my old memory but it worked and the book has arrived today.
