Do you sometimes dream of book, a very special book, where you could come across the pictures of some of the most interesting graphic artists of the XXth century? You know, people like like André François, alongside with Roland Topor, Jean Alessandrini, or even Roman Cieslewicz. As you’re and open-minded person, you’d be glad to have along those pages a few artist with a more, er, experimental practice, like Marie-Rose Lortet or Miralda. Some hi-class photographs and infographics would be a plus. Of course the book would be very nicely designed by a big name like Peter Knapp for instance. And, last but not least, it would talk about surgery and feature bloody pictures of organs because it is so cool!
