Jeronaton et Iznogoud

Jean Torton Jeronaton Histoire de Lire Versailles 2015
For the first time, the history book show took place in several locations, instead of just the town hall. The history comics book part of the show was held inside the gorgeous Préfecture building which you can see from the outside by clicking here. It is one of VDP's favourite buildings in the city. These rooms aren't usually open to the public, so not only was it fun to watch comic authors (here Jean Torton, a.k.a Jeronaton, dressed in Napoleonic uninform) signing or rather drawing autographs but it was also a fantastic opportunity to see the inside of the Préfecture. Below are the authors of Iznogoud, during a conference. More to come next week as VDP is away for a few days, posts are scheduled so do stop by if you have a minute and happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate it!

Pour la première fois, le salon Histoire de Lire a essaimé dans d'autres lieux. Les BD d'histoire, ça se passait dans l'hôtel du département / la préfecture. Pour voir les photos de l'extérieur de ce qui est l'un des bâtiments préférés de VDP dans la ville, cliquez ici. C'était chouette de regarder les auteurs, ici Jean Torton, dit Jeronaton très napoléonien, dédicacer en dessin ses ouvrages. Ci-dessous, les auteurs d'Iznogoud, pendant une conférence. De surcroît, ce fut pour VDP l'occasion de prendre des photos de l'intérieur de la préfecture, photos à venir la semaine prochaine car VDP s'absente quelques jours. Le blog ne s'arrête pas pour autant, des billets sont prépostés, si vous avez une minute, venez voir !

You're right it is a truly gorgeous building, such a wonderful exterior in your picture. That's pretty cool signing your work in a Napoleonic uniform, did you buy anything?

Michelle said...

That is a gorgeous place. Enjoy your time away!

It is beautiful! Enjoy your break.

Unusual to think of the graphic novel format as ideal for history.

I love the idea of history comic books! Enjoy your time away, Ciel!

It's an attractive room so I can see why you enjoy being allowed in. Besides, watching artists at work is always interesting, methinks.

I love that the authors come to the signing in costume :) Aimee would be ecstatic! Enjoy your time away Ciel.

I love the way that author looks in his fine uniform. The inside of that building looks as grand as the outside.

Halcyon said...

Funny that he also wore a costume. How neat to get into a not-usually-public room!

Lowell said...

Love the costume and the signing by drawing! Hope you have a wonderful break!

Iznoggod dans le salon histoire : pourquoi pas
malheureusement Iznogood excellente BD (préférée de mon fils) aurait du s'arréter avec le décés des auteurs d'origine

comme bien d'autre
