From the Martine Gossieaux Gallery: THE PASSION OF DRAWING HUMOR

La galerie Martine Gossieaux, a Paris gallery that for the past 15 years has showcased works by Sempe, Chaval, Searle, Steig, Cobean, Gorey, Addams, and other singular cartoonists, presents a new hardcover anthology titled LE PASSION DU DESSIN D'HUMOUR (or see this Google English translation link for THE PASSION OF DRAWING HUMOR).

Of course, if you live in Europe, this book is easier to find than in the States. Here is a link to a page where you can, in a cyber-clicky-mouse-way, page through some of the book to get a flavor for the scope of imagery.

Above: a screenshot of that page, with a gatefold of Bosc cartoons. BTW, Alain Damman has a wonderful site devote to Bosc here.

A very big hat tip to Claude Haber for passing this along! Thanks, Claude!

Yeah, it sure looks like a wonderful addition to one's cartoon book library!
