Graphismes according to Laboureur

Jean-Emile Laboureur, with no doubt, was one of the most prolific illustrator of his generation. He left his mark on the period between WWI and WWII, with a style which combines the simpleness of the line to a delicate and a bright expression.

Graphismes, made up of 10 engravings, is a book meant for the pleasure of the eye. Each engraving, titled, is preceded by a comment selected from a well or unwell-known text. This work, humourous, reflects the refreshing lightness of the thirties.

Currently, the Librairie Loliée can show you :
