Carnets d'Orient
Jacques Ferrandez, (A Suivre)


"carnets d'Orients" (Casterman) est le tome 1, paru en janvier 1987 de cette série qui en compte 10 T10 en avril 2009) + 2 intégrales.
Jacques Ferrandez raconte l'histoire de l'Algérie, depuis sa conquête en 1836, jusqu'à son indépendance à la fin des années 50.


Sédicace 'Un fort, des palmiers, du sable' est un clin d’œil au titre du 1er album de Loustal "Une vespa, des lunettes noires, une palm beach, elles voudraient en plus que j'aie de la conversation" et des palmiers très présents dans son oeuvre.

J'ai ajouté la couverture dépliée, époque des couvertures souples de Caseterman.

About Jacques Ferrandez

Jacques Ferrandez was born in Alger, Algeria, but he and his family settled in Nice, France, when he was only a couple of months old. After a six year education at the National School of Decorative Arts, he embarked on a career in comics, starting with the story 'L'Homme au Bigos' in 1977. This comic, written by Rodolphe and prepublished in Télérama, introduced the character of 'Commissaire Raffini', whose further adventures appeared in four albums at Les Humanoïdes Associés between 1980 and 1988. Ferrandez and Rodolphe additionally cooperated on a series of short stories for À Suivre, as well as 'Anne et Charles' in Circus (1982-85), and some works for Métal Hurlant and Pilote. Stories by Ferrandez and Rodolphe were collected in books like 'Outsiders' (Les Humanoïdes Associés (1985) and 'Le Vicomte' (Dargaud, 1986). Also for À Suivre, Ferrandez wrote and drew 'Arrière-Pays', a series of short and more intimate stories. After a change of style in 1986, he began realizing his old dream: to tell a moving epic about his homeland, Algeria, and its fight for independence. Over the years, he produced a series of seven books, which depicted Algeria's modern history with sophistication in tasteful watercolors. This collection, called 'Carnets d'Orient', was prepublished in magazines like Corto and À Suivre. Text (c) Lambiek
