Cartoonist and illstrator Jean-Jacques Sempe has been delighting
readers in France and beyond with his witty drawing and cunning eye
for the finer amusements of the human condition for over 40 years.
This most recent body of his work from 2003, is now available in
English. In "Mixed Messages", Sempe turns his attention to the
trappings of modern life, mobile phones, designer water, as well as
revisiting his favourite subjects, struggling artists, aloof
psychologists and unhappy couples. Now in English by the "Asterix
the Gaul" translator Anthea Bell, this book appeals to
Francophiles, cartoonists, and the general public.
