This photobook by iconic New Wave director Agnès Varda is dedicated to tourism on the French Riviera and serves as a post-production follow-up for her 1958 short “Du Côté de la Côte”. It contains archival material such as texts, stills, paintings and photographs, with a display reminiscing of Chris Marker’s ‘Petite Planète’ travel guides.
