Offering an intimate look into the everyday life of Serge Gainsbourg, this book has been published to accompany exhibitions in Paris and New York Via scribbled notes to his butler, Fulbert Ribeaut, we get to know the man behind the artist. For ten years, Serge Gainsbourg lived in a house on Paris' Rue Verneuil with Fulbert, who would become a close friend. Immediately after Gainsbourg's death, Fulbert's nephew Yannick Ribeaut photographed his house extensively.
