Four extensive 3-language text books, with the entire transcript of the, an interview with Jean-Luc Godard by Jonathan Rosenbaum and more than 300 stills from "Histoire(s) du cinema" complete this edition. The choice of music incorporated by Jean-Luc Godard is a reflection of his continuing association with Manfred Eicher, ECM's founder and producer. "Manfred began our relationship", the filmmaker has noted, "by sending me music. And after listening, I wrote to him and asked him to send me more records. I had the feeling that we were more or less in the same territory: he with sounds, me with images. The music he was sending made us feel like making a film, and I began to imagine things due to that kind of music. In fact, some of the records brought me to a picture called Nouvelle Vague and later other ones Often the sounds gave us the feeling of being orphaned from images, or exiled from a land of images it was like hearing music from films which didn't exist."
