Delon: Les femmes de ma vie

Delon: Les femmes de ma vie is one of the most beautiful books I own. First Alain Delon himself is one of most beautiful persons ever, I'm never tired looking at his pictures. This book contains more than 200 pictures (so it's said, I haven't counted them and never will) well reproduced on glossy papers. The size of the book is quite big: 29,7 x 29,8 cm, that I had difficulty finding it a place in my little room.

The description at Amazon says that Alain Delon is one of the authors, and I was curious, I wondered whether he really had had the time. After I got the book, it turned out that he only gave comments on the photographs, with his handwritings. The book is divided into 3 parts: The women in my life, my co-stars, and my friends. Then, little stories about them. Stories of each woman in 'The women in my life' is told in more details (one page each), one page of story for 'my co-stars', one page for 'my friends', and one page for his two dogs. It was a surprise to see the two dogs were included in this 'les femmes de ma vie' book.

THANKS A LOT for your reply....i'm just wondering, did he make an extra significance to Nathalie Delon as she was the only legal wife he had?!

I don't notice any significance to Nathalie's section in this book. Romy gets 9 pages, Nathalie 7, Mireille 7 and Rosalie 6. The book was a collaboration with Philippe Barbier and although Alain Delon did give some of his photo collection, most of the photos came from Philip Barbier's and Gamma-Rapho Agency.
