Sequence of paintings with accompanying narrative, presented as an Artist Book. One of the most beautiful art/illustrated books of our time. The first and only edition. Published in a very small and limited print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. A brilliant production by Herve Tullet: Oversize-volume format. Pictorial hard boards with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Art by Herve Tullet. Text by Vincent Brocvielle, in felicitous English translation by Sarah Adams. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Herve Tullet's and Vincent Brocvielle's "Hubbub", a painterly sequence-celebration of summer spent blissfully on the beach. "Intimate yet universal in its evocation of wistful days at the beach, this witty and evocatively illustrated book whisks readers off to the seaside while immersing them in the laziness and craziness of the beach. Humor, reflection, and observation are mixed in the beachgoers' dialogue that accompanies the movement of the art. Like a journal of a sun-drenched vacation, this vivid text with its surprising ear for dialogue, as if a microphone had been left lying on the sand, is always colorful and often comic, as it paints a portrait of humanity enjoying time out" (Publisher's blurb). A lifelong artist/illustrator of now-classic children's books, Herve Tullet's art in "Hubbub" is sexy, sensuous, and sensual. His mastery of form and color is complete. An absolute delight. An absolute "must-have" title for Herve Tullet and Vincent Brocvielle collectors. This copy is magnificently signed and inscribed on the title page in a riot of colors, using metallic-silver, gold, blue, and green pen-markers, that amount to an original artwork by Herve Tullet. It is signed and drawn on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a contemporary art/illustrated book classic. As far as we know, this is the only signed and drawn copy of the first and only edition available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. A rare signed copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with color plates. One of the most brilliant living French artist/illustrators. A fine copy. . ISBN 1840595035. $70.00
