Carnet de La Petite Escalère nº1, couverture. Graphisme A+ Studio, Paris.

La Petite Escalère Publication #1

Publications - Summer 2012

This booklet is the first of a series that will explore the history, evolution and activities of La Petite Escalère. The series aspires to be a living memory of the site by providing in each issue a different image of the garden, its many variations and changes over the seasons and years. It also aims to tell the story of the people who created La Petite Escalère, to record the visit of those who will discover or admire the garden, as well as to document the creations and thoughts inspired by their visits, encounters and exchanges.

Published in 2011, this first book gave Dominique Haim the opportunity to tell the story of La Petite Escalère and its founders, and to try to convey the specificity of this garden with a text untitled “Secret Garden” and a selection of photograph of the garden and the collection by talented and renowned photographers such as Martine Fougeron, Brigitte Lacombe and Carolina Penafiel.
