Rest by Charlotte Gainsbourg

Charlotte Gainsbourg unveils Rest, a beautiful book tracing the making of her eponymous fifth album, which came out in 2017. It follows the various steps of the musician and actress’s creative process and features her personal photographs, handwritten notes, sketches and poetry. The result is a collection of memories where she made the album including Paris, New York and London.

The first image of this book is of particular significance for Gainsbourg.  It shows an alley of the Montparnasse Cemetery. Several members of his family, including his father Serge and his sister Kate Barry rest there.
