General Information

Anthropomorphizing in the service of satire.

Genius and madness go hand in hand,as the saying goes. In the case of theFrench draughtsman and cartoonistGrandville (Jean Ignace Isidore Gérard;1803–1847) one must think a littlesmallerin scale. He was also not exactlya happy man. He died in mentalconfusionafter living through too manystrokes of bad fortune. In spite of thatGrandville was incredibly industrious,leaving behind approximately 3,000drawings.He employed the techniqueof anthropomorphization in order tosatiricallydepict and expose the charactersand political relationships of thetime in France during the Restorationand the July Monarchy, without runningafoul of the censor.Grandville‘s fantastic and fanciful illustrationsalso characterizethe „Scènesde la vie privée et publique des animaux“(1842; in English „Pictures Fromthe Official and Family Lives of the Animals“). Our greeting cards use some ofthe drawings from this double volume,reinterpretingand adapting them to fitin the circular imprint.
