I really need to find this book, Love on the left bank by the amazing Dutch photographer Ed van der Elsken. He was part of the hipster, bohemian scene in Paris, when, in 1956, he published a ground-breaking photobook called Love on the Left Bank. That book has been beautifully re-printed, and it captures the joie de vivre of that seemingly carefree era. Taken from SPACE IN TEXT
