Egoïste is the subjective dictionary of an era. Known for the magic of the models, its mythical images such as Yannick Noah's nude by Avedon or the portrait of Ava Gardner by Helmut Newton and its bespoke advertisements designed and created especially by Nicole Wisniak, Egoïste offered a space of creativity to great writers such as Françoise Sagan, Jean d'Ormesson, Bernard Frank, Patrick Besson, Jean-Paul Enthoven, Frederic Beigbeder, Marie Darrieussecq). The release of Egoïste is still an event hailed by the international press. Each issue is passionately collected by many fans" (Egoïste).
