Summary The American photojournalist Therese Bonney was one of many brilliant young foreigners drawn to the bright lights of Paris in the 1920s. There she founded the Bonney Service, the first American illustrated press service in Europe. Its speciality - her passion - was modern French design and architecture. Based on Bonney's amazing and little known archive, this book comprehensively documents the modern movement in Paris between the wars.
