The introduction is by Claude Prevost and the photographs by Clovis Prevost.

"La Maison Picassiette [in Chartres] is the extraordinary result of one man's work between 1938 and 1964. The monument he left behind is a house and garden covered with intricate mosaics of broken crockery, painting and sculpture. Much has been written to try to explain why Raymond Isidore, a middle-aged manual worker, produced such a beautiful, complicated, inspirational and mystifying environment from the house he had built for his family. Perhaps what is amazing is not just that he chose to devote himself to his project, but that he achieved so much. The scale and richness is awe-inspiring." [From the British mosaics site thejoyofshards].

The text is in French. First Edition.
