1. Le Livre de Poche

    A few years ago I collected second hand French books from people for a project and exhibition. Recently I had a clear out and got rid of a lot of the books apart a few ‘Le Livre de Poche ( literally ‘The pocket book’) titles. I’ve kept a few other books because they are precious to other people and because these people have asked me to keep them safe, or have requested that I look after them indefinitely.
