  1. Yves Got

    Yves Got

    Born in Cahors in 1939.

    He began his career as an illustrator in 1968, creating abstract images for Hara Kiri, and then quickly moving into the ranks of Pilote and the Canard Enchaîné. His signature, cynical black vulture, the Baron Noir, was created in 1976 and satirically soared over the plains of French political comedy in the pages of Le Matin de Paris until 1981. Got has continued to publish in such newspapers as Libération, La Croix and Le Monde Diplomatique, and teaches cartoon drawing at the Emile Cohl School at Lyons.

  2. J.R.R Tolkien

    J.R.R Tolkien

    Born January 3, 1892 in Bloemfontein and died on 2 September 1973 in Bournemouth.

    Principally known for The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, Tolkien began writing for his own pleasure in 1910, conceiving an entire mythology around languages of his own invention. The 1937 publication of The Hobbit made Tolkien a renowned children’s author. The appearance of The Lord of the Rings in 1954-55 made him a societal phenomenon in the 1960s. Tolkien would continue to elaborate his mythology to the day of his death – his unfinished Silmarillion would be published posthumously by his son in 1977.

  3. Lucien Laforge

    Lucien Laforge

    Born in Paris in 1889 and died in the same city in 1952.

    His mother a painter of miniature tableaux and his father a violinist, Laforge hesitated between a career in music or drawing, but ended up choosing the path of illustration in 1910. Working for such publications as Le Canard Enchaîné and L’Humanité, he became known for his leftist commitment and anti-conformism. A staunch pacifist, he twice escaped being part of the slaughter of World War I. His innovative works often call out to the child in each of us through a style that is heavily influenced by Art Nouveau.
