Featuring multiple states of many of the illustrations, this dossier provides an in-depth and unique look into the artist's process as well as turn-of-the-century Indochina. Intricate lines combine with a muted yet varied color palate to portray the many scenes described in the book, including Hanoi, Singapore, brothels, opium dens, and harbor towns. Henry le Rich was a French painter, sculptor, illustrator and designer who taught engraving at the Academy of Fine Arts in Paris.
