Sempe´ was born on 17 August 1932 in Bordeaux. A somewhat bad student, he was expelled for indiscipline and started working, taking on a variety of jobs. At 18, he decided to go to Paris. He did the rounds of the editorial rooms and, in 1951, sold his first drawing to the newspaper Sud-Ouest. His meeting with Goscinny coincided with the launch of a dazzling career as newspaper cartoonist. His first collection of drawings appeared in 1962: Rien n’est simple (Nothing is simple). This was followed by about thirty more, all humurous mas- terpieces beautifully reflecting his tender and ironic vision of our flaws and those of the world around us. Sempe´ is one of the rare cartoonists to have illustrated the covers of the very prestigious The New Yorker, and is currently entertaining millions of readers in Paris Match. (The prints 30x40 cm and 40x50 are presented under passes-partout. The dimensions include the print and the passes-partout.)
