book club: jane and serge a family album
get inspired by the french duo’s ’70s life.
If you've ever wondered what it's like to be Jane Birkin, a new book purblished by Taschen is going to help you figure it out. Jane and Serge: A Family Album is a collection of photographs of the iconic couple taken by Birkin's brother and renown filmmaker, Andrew Birkin that will fill you to the brim with inspiration.
The exclusive snaps show Birkin and Gainsbough riding in a coupe through England, canoodling in the back of a car, and hanging out in their apartment. The book chronicles the 12 year relationship between the duo behind the song "Je t'aime... moi non plus," the album Melody Nelson, and the parents of today's coolest French It Girl, Charlotte Gainsbourg. Spend five minutes clicking through the gallery of photos of Birkin and Gainsbourg and you'll immediately want to become a French chanteuse with blunt bands and a Pepto Bismol pink couch. Now imagine if you had a whole book of photos plus a poster, stickers, prints, and a sew-on patch all designed by the geniuses at M/M (Paris). Yeah, we'll take ten!
So be sure to buy Jane and Serge: A Family Album for you and everyone else on your holiday gift list--you can scoop it up here.
