Notes

First edition, first printing. This edition contains the image of "Petit Mathieu" that Morvan was forced to remove from the book. The subject, a 17 year old far-right activist, is posed with a flare gun and a hammer on a double spread (pp. 110-111): both weapons that were not outlawed at the time in France, and so could be used in street fights. The subject sued Morvan, with a French court ordering him to remove the image from subsequent issues on 20 March 2001. This copy comes with a wraparound band, announcing the court's decision to ban the book. A second edition was published in 2013 by La Manufacture de Livres, re-edited with a new series of images shot by Morvan between 2009 and 2012 - including "Petit Mathieu", and prompting a second lawsuit and banning of the book.
