"I have made my most memorable purchases on trips, as a transient. Property and possession belong to the tactical sphere. Collectors are people with a tactical instinct; their experience teaches them that when they capture a strange city, the smallest antique shop can be a fortress, the most remote stationery store a key position. How many cities have revealed themselves to me in the marches I undertook in the pursuit of books!"

1. Féve

The féve is a small charm contained in the Galette de rois, a traditional cake prepared during the Christmas season. It is said that this small doll hidden in the cake brings good luck to the person who finds it, and will become the King or Queen of France for that day. A Souvenir from a distant time.

Also known as The White Beach, Sansone Beach is a magic place where crystal water brushes a 300m long expanse of polka dot stones. The pebbles are made of white to pale gray-green Eurite stone. They are characterized by aggregates and veins, which make them unique. A Souvenir from the unexpected imagination of nature.
