Paris: Fernand Nathan, 1968. 1st Edition. Quarto, publisher's glossy photo-illustrated paper-covered boards.
Greek installment of French photojournalist Dominique Darbois’s "Children of the World" series, following the day in the life of Yanis, a young flute-playing shepherd boy. Established in 1952 by Parisian publisher Nathan Fernand, the series was published from the 1950s to the 70s, with each volume following the peregrinations of a curious child, from a variety of cultures and nationalities. Most books in the series were created in collaboration with ethnologist Francois Mazière, and were praised for their modernist-inspired assemblage layouts. Illustrated with black-and-white photos and color cut-outs. Designed by art director Aline Elmayan. With a list of other titles in the series in the rear. Text in French. No dust jacket, as issued. Owner inscription in pencil to upper pastedown. Tape residue to endpapers from removed old library protective dust jacket. Light rubbing to spine-ends and corners. Very good. Item #8431
