Gustave Flaubert and Marc-Camille Chaimowicz
Madame Bovary

British publisher Four Corners continues their "Familiars" series with Flaubert's Madame Bovary. Four Corners Familiars features artists’ responses to classic novels and short stories. They provide a fresh look at the tradition of the illustrated novel, with each artist choosing a text to be reprinted in full alongside their newly created work.

Flaubert’s great novel is lavishly illustrated with over 250 images created for this volume by Marc Camille Chaimowicz. As with all books in the Familiars series, the text of the novel is included complete, set in a new typeface, specially comissioned for this edition, here based on fonts in use in France in the 1800s.

Marc Camille Chaimowicz’s recent exhibitions include Jean Genet... The Courtesy Of Objects, at NUCA (Norwich), Nottingham Contemporary and Focal Point Gallery (Southend). He lives and works in London and Burgundy.
