Sempé’s cartoons blend humour and poetry in whimsical portraits of countrysides and cityscapes, often seen from a high viewpoint, in which tiny figures move around in their neat moustaches and berets. Quintessentially French, his illustrations are timeless and exquisite.
Recommended By Antoine Laurain
Sempé is tender, melancholy and deeply human. You can spend several minutes looking at a Sempé illustration, as you would a painting in a gallery.
