Le Louvre invite la bande dessinée

Adrian K. Sanders writing for I V Y paris

Parisart-14-LL-De-Crecy-P-80571 Since 2005, the Louvre has worked in conjunction with BD editor and publisher Futuropolis to showcase a work of bande dessinee that directly contends with the history of the Louvre.

This year's selection Le Ciel au-dessus du Louvre by Bernar Yslaire and Jean-Claude Carrière was created completely on computers (much to the horror of the elitist BD masses) and will be displayed exclusively on two large LCD screens.

Though there isn't much impetus for one to close up the old laptop and trek all the way to the Louvre
just to see something on an LCD screen, big fans of Futuropolis will be happy to know that both Nicolas de Crécy and Éric Liberge will be doing a signing at the Carousel du Louvre this Friday.

Feeble attempts at embracing technology aside, the Louvre's BD support is welcomed. And for those who aren't too familiar with bande dessinee
, this is a great exposition just to see up close how time consuming and maddening the cartoonist's job really is... even with the help of Adobe Illustrator.
