To accompany the re-edition of the book, we wanted a woman's perspective to bring her sensitivity and emotions to this work from another time. We have chosen to give carte blanche to the duo of female artists Elsa & Johanna who present an original series and a singular and offbeat response to the book.

The book contains the original uncensored edition of Baudelaire's collection accompanied by these strange engraved prints by Antoine d'Agata. Present and past are superimposed. Like a game of transparency that will present the frame of an image on the cover.
