Grand Père (new illustrated dition)

Jean-Louis Costes, Anne Van der Linden - Grand Père (new illustrated  dition)
The novel by Jean-Louis Costes in a deluxe edition, illustrated by Anne Van der Linden—the crazy epic of Costes' grandfather at the beginning of the 20th century: a Cossack in Russia, a legionnaire in Morocco, a convict in Guyana and a collaborator in 1940...
Performer, musician, filmmaker, cartoonist and writer, Jean-Louis Costes (born in 1954) is a cult figure of the French underground scene.
Anne Van der Linden (born 1959 in England, lives and works in Saint-Denis, France) is a French painter and drawer. Beeing of a literary education, she came early to drawing expression, then to oil painting. After an abstract period, she developed her figurative style from the 90's. Her art is in the filiation of German expressionism, middle-age engravings, cartoonists as Robert Crumb and many more. Her attachment to literature brought her naturally to illustration activity, for edition project as well as for newspapers. Searching to express through visual arts the tensed interaction between inner wild life and social normalization could be her main concern. Her work has been widely exhibited and published in France and in foreign countries.
