- About : So great was the 'modesty' of the emperor Maximilen that he isolated himself in his restroom, 'without help of any servant'. So great was the 'modesty' of Isabelle of Castille that she preferred to die from ulcer but not to show her body. Doctors even had to administer her the extreme unction under the sheets, because she didn't want to show her feet. And what to say of Anne of Austria who has ordered many 'indecent' paintings to be destroyed; or Louis XIII who...

cov/bib_nuintegral.jpg - Author : Roger Salardenne
- Editor : Société Arys (Paris) - Encre
- ISBN : 2864183102
- Date : 07-1999
- About : Existent in Germany since 1903, the nudism has arrived to France only in 1925. And naturally, it is beyond the Rhine that its precursors will go in search of their models. Starting in 1930, Roger Salarden will find material for two books before closing the series by 'The integral nudity in the French nudists'. More than 65 years after its publication, this book seems to be written today. Written in a modern a vivid style, instructive and entertaining as well, the books guides us to the clubs of the Parisian region, including many 'first time experiences', the customs and habits of these men and women who live naked. Also, the critical point of view toward the nudism (naturism), some of the behavior of its followers, some joy lived ans shared with the reader, all seem to be outside the time, and to be very up-to-date to the beginners of the end of the century...

fr The Civilization of Manners

- Author : Norbert Elias
- Editor : Pocket
- Collection : Agora, numéro 49
- ISBN : 2266032828
- Date : 11-1989
- About : Translation from German (1973). What were good table manners in the Middle Ages? How people cleaned their nose at Renaissance? When first appeared the notition of chastity associated to the sexiual behaviour? Norbert Elias analyzes the customs of the western civilization and studies their changes from the end of the Middle Ages to the contemporary time. Funny and unexpected examples, little known texts with plenty of surprises deliciously flavor this book. From a mischievous song to a textbook of savoir-vivre, from a monologue of moralist to a collection of proverbs, every time splendidly commented, Norbert Elias gives anew and original meaning to the word 'civilization', based on the concrete study of customs. This book of a precursor became a classical of sociology.

fr To Live the Naturism

cov/bib_vivrenaturism.jpg - Author : France Guillain
- Editor : Presses du Management
- Collection : Littérature
- ISBN : 2878455460
- Date : 08-2002
- About : Far from ordinary people misconceptions, the naturism is in fact a life style, a life philosophy, a look on the world which helps us to understand ourselves, to find again the values such as shyness, respect of people, of self and of the nature, which become natural when we shed off clothes. Confusing it with the nudism is common, nevertheless the naturism is recognized as a social way of life. The proof is the control exercized by the French Federation over the naturist resorts.
France Guillain makes a live portrait of the life of the naturism in France, from its beginnings to the probable future. The essential thing is the transmission of humane values, the liberation of the self regarding the body. Finally, there is nothing to see at the naturist places, but essentially to live through!
At the end, an exhaustif guide of different clubs and resorts.

- About : Account of voyage on a sailboat in a family
Take some sun
In the hollow of the hands,
A bit of sun
And leave.

Go on the wind,
Follow your dream.
Leave this very moment,
The youth is so short!

There are roads
Unknown to men,
There are roads
So light!

Do not regret
What tou leave behind,
Look there
The horizon is bright.

Far, always further,
Leave singing.
The world belongs
To those who have nothing.

fr Naturism, a Paradise Rediscovered?

cov/bib_paradisretrouve.jpg - Author : François Delion
- Editor : Edition no 1
- ISBN : 286391619X
- Date : 1994
- About : The film made by Robert Salis, 'To Live Naked, The Quest of the Lost Paradise', aired on TF1 (France) in 1994, has given a fresh look on the naturism and received a huge enthusiasm from the public. A video cassette of the full version of this film exists now, distributed by WEA. The book, 'The Naturism, a Found Paradise?' follows the movie's steps and let us fully enter this world, so unfamiliar and so charming.
What can unite Léo, 48, a bank CEO, Maud, 16, a student, Madeleine, 68, retired, Hans, 35, a mechanic, Roger, 61, a former policeman, Joëlle, 31, an insurance employee and the little Jerry, 10 years old? They come from different social levels, different places, and yet they often come together, especially in summer. Naked. In Montalivet, la Genèse, or Héliomonde, people get rid of their clothes as soon as the weather invites them to do so, in family most of the time, in full respect of others and the environment. The social barriers seem to come down as easily as the clothes. This gives these places a feeling of the paradise on Earth.

- Author : Michael Von Graffenried
- Editor : Falguières
- ISBN : 2881000703
- About : Michael von Graffenried was born in Switzerland in 1957. Self-taught, he began working as a photographer in 1978.
An extraordinary and very funny account of everyday life at a Swiss nudist camp. Picnics, calisthenics, team sports, music-making and quiet conversation are the order of the day for these 'Friends of the Light'. But being naked is not enough: not only do they not wear clothes but they also don't drink, smoke or eat meat. For them nudity is part of an overall aim to become better people. Founded at Thielle, Switzerland, in 1937, the camp has never before opened its doors to an outside photographer.

The summer residence in Ardèches that my friend Gaston has offered to us, did not keep its promises: the pool was not functioning, the TV has died, but on the other hand, we inherited his grand-father - usually drank before 6 pm! - of Fifi, a merry young imp, of Néron the cat, of Arthur the dog, of the ducks Dupont-Dupont, - in short, a crowd which was not in our ordre du jour! Hopefully, we finished out to fraternize with all this little sympathetic world, and, together, we went in search of the paradise: the sun, the pool and the TV. And where could we find all that?
