An art book exploring the illustrative work of bande dessinee artist Berthet (Pin-Up). This is a numbered limited edition with a removable art print signed by the artist bound into the front. Text is in both English and French.
From the publisher:
Philippe Berthet is one of the most formidable artists of femininity in bande dessinee. Besides the images linked to the Pin-up series, Philippe Berthet creates illustrations linked to the "ladies." He escapes the clichés of Film Noir to explore new themes and attitudes always featuring exquisite ladies of paper. Drawings on textured paper, panoramas, tango, variations on the color ranges and graphic framing form the body of this beautiful book: Ladies. An ode to elegance and feminine charm. And, the icing on the cake, is the introduction by Jean-Luc Fromental, in both English and French, a lively text presenting, with intelligence, this part of Berthet's work.
