Off the shelf: Sempé 10

Here's the back cover and then that's it for Sempé (for now). I haven't written much about the man, but you can learn more from looking at his drawings than from any rubbish I've got to say. Looking at these drawings again has reminded me of something I still haven't learned properly: that drawing is about feeling as much as it is about seeing.
'What is important in a cartoon, he explains, is to "capture the essence of something, not to try to copy it".'
