I was recently visiting my friend Michel Lagarde, an illustration agent and publisher in Paris, and besides falling in love with his amazing collection of drawings by artists like Sempé, Georges Lepape, and Ronald Searle, I fell for the small collection of comic books he has just published. The cover design is modern-retro using vibrant colors, the size is small enough to carry them around, and the black and white drawings by eight different artists are funny and beautiful.
