A handsome art book presenting all 175 original watercolor illustrations by François Boucq for the new covers of the San Antonio novels written by Frédéric Dard.

From Wikipedia:

Detective Superintendent Antoine San-Antonio is a kind of French James Bond without gadgets, flanked by two colleagues, the old, sickly but wise inspector César Pinaud and the gargantuesque inspector Alexandre-Benoît Bérurier. He is a member of the French secret service and has to fulfill impossible missions given by "Le Vieux" (the Old Man), the head of the French police. With the help of his colleagues he always succeeds.

Only a few have been translated into English in 1969-1971.
