"'Paris de Nuit' is also a ravishing book object in a purely physical sense. The printing represents arguably the most luscious gravure ever seen, the blacks beeing so rich and deep that after handling the book one expects to find sooty deposits all over one's fingers. The gradation of tones is wonderfully subtle, describing an apparently infinite range of black and near-black tones. The layout, with its characteristic fullpage bleeds, never more felicitously employed, takes us from image to image, from page to page, and across night-time Paris, with effortless panache." (Martin Paar, Gerry Badger (ed.), The Photobook: A History, Vol. I, London et al. 2004, p. 134).
