Description

The most extensive collection of cartoons by one of the world's best-loved illustrators Jean-Jacques Sempé.

A unique collection of more that 200 cartoons by Jean-Jacques Sempé, C'est la vie! represents the world famous cartoonist's work at its best. Cartoon connoisseurs, francophiles and the general public will be delighted to see the world through the ever observant and witty eye of Jean-Jacques Sempé who captures the essence of modern life though familiar characters: happily-married couples (some more and some less so), tyrannical bosses, unpredictable children, bored rich people, annoying neighbours, dedicated musicians, faithful churchgoers and aspiring artists.

Jean-Jacques Sempé (b.1932) is one of the world's most successful illustrators and cartoonists. He is the illustrator of the classic children's-book character, Nicholas, and author of a collection of some 30 albums of his cartoons and graphic novels, all published or to be published by Phaidon. His world-renowned illustrations and cartoons are featured on the cover of the New Yorker and in Paris Match.

Anthea Bell was awarded the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize and the Helen and Kurt Wolff Prize (USA) in 2002 for her translation of W G Sebald's Austerlitz. Her many works of translation from French and German (for which she has received several other awards) include the Nicholas books and, with Derek Hockridge, the entire Asterix the Gaul saga by René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo.
