Yves Chaland: Une Vie en dessins



In stock



"Yves Chaland: A Life in Drawings" This book is incredible and a must-have for any fan of Chaland. It presents over 300 originals chronologically, "scanned and reproduced with care," from his earliest unpublished comics in 1971 to his advertising and print work in the late 1980s, as well as numerous archival photographs from every period. The text is minimal with artwork on nearly every of the book's 384 pages. All the classics are here along with rare and never before seen pieces.

From the publisher:

Yves Chaland is an essential author in the world of comics. In the 1980s, with a series of masterful works ("Bob Fish", "Freddy Lombard" and "Le Jeune Albert"), he was one of the major reinventors of the clear line.

A beautiful Champaka Brussels book presenting more than 250 originals scanned and reproduced with care: covers, legendary sequences, magical illustrations, pages mixing action and mystery, and panel enlargements. "Yves Chaland, une vie en Dessin" has a text by Jean-Christophe Ogier and quotes from Chaland.


Yves Chaland est un auteur essentiel au sein du monde de la bande dessinée. Dans les années 80, il a été un des grands rénovateurs de la ligne claire. À travers une oeuvre magistrale ("Bob Fish", "Freddy Lombard" et "Le Jeune Albert"), Chaland a développé un univers imaginaire de première force : celui de la bande dessinée belge des années cinquante revisitée par son incroyable fantaisie. Sans oublier son extraordinaire travail d'illustrateur. Un beau livre Champaka Brussels présentant plus 250 originaux scannés et reproduits avec soin. Triomphe du dessin via couvertures, séquences légendaires, illustrations magiques, originaux alternant action et mystère et agrandissements de cases, "Yves Chaland, une vie en Dessins" est servi par un texte de référence rédigé par Jean-Christophe Ogier et des citations éclairantes d'un auteur hors-normes.
