The multitalented French author and illustrator Benjamin Lacombe lends his unique spirit to our Paperblanks collection with this lively design. In this Madame Butterfly cover, with art originally from Lacombe’s illustrated 2013 book of the same name, the artist’s ability to capture humanity and honest emotion through his art is on full display.

Described by the artist himself as a combination of pop surrealism and lowbrow art, Lacombe’s style has a vintage look while being distinctly contemporary. With diverse interests ranging from painting and sculpture to cinema and music, Lacombe has come to be seen as one of the leaders of contemporary French illustration.

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.
