About this book

Considered to be among the greatest humourists in film history along with Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, Jacques Tati in the six features he made between 1949 and 1974 — Jour de fête, Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday, Mon Oncle, Play Time, Trafic, and Parade — constructed a world apart, with its own forms, language, and humour: a humour as mysterious as it is funny. This five-volume set of books is the collection of Tati’s writings, interviews, screenplays for all his films including two that were never made, hundreds of stills, production photos, drawings and blueprints. The details that this collection is staggering, which is befitting to a filmmaker who considered no component minor.
