George Bon Salle is a former professional basketball player, having played for both the NBA’s Syracuse Nationals and the Chicago Packers (known today as the Washington Wizards), as well as the NIBL’s Denver Truckers. His impressive lifetime collection of works by Villemot, with whom he had a personal friendship, provides the core of this book. However, Bon Salle also drew from libraries and private collections around the world in order to create a unique and comprehensive work. The author also selected the book’s essays, which were written by notable historians as well as directors of the companies for which Villemot created lasting images.
