The multitalented French author and illustrator Benjamin Lacombe lends his unique spirit to our Paperblanks collection with this lively design. Described by the artist as a combination of pop surrealism and lowbrow art, Lacombeâ´s style has a vintage look while being distinctly contemporary. In this Madame Butterfly cover, from his 2013 book of the same name, Lacombeâ´s ability to capture humanity and honest emotion is on full display. Having grown up in Paris, Lacombe pursued his schooling at the cityâ´s iconic ∢cole Nationale Supâˆ©rieure des Arts Dâˆ©coratifs before publishing his first graphic novel at the age of 19. Now in his late 30s, Lacombeâ´s career has truly taken off, with his works published and translated around the world. We canâ´t wait to see where his fertile imagination and creative spirit will lead.
