The multitalented French author and illustrator Benjamin Lacombe lends his unique spirit to our Paperblanks collection with this lively design. Described by the artist as a combination of pop surrealism and lowbrow art, Lacombe's style has a vintage look while being distinctly contemporary. In this Madame Butterfly cover, from his 2013 book of the same name, Lacombe's ability to capture humanity and honest emotion is on full display. Having grown up in Paris, Lacombe pursued his schooling at the city's iconic École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs before publishing his first graphic novel at the age of 19. Now in his late 30s, Lacombe's career has truly taken off, with his works published and translated around the world. We can't wait to see where his fertile imagination and creative spirit will lead.
