“The Comic Art of Joseph Hémard”

It would take a genius to illustrate one of the most boring books imaginable, a code of tax laws, and create a comic tour-de-force. That genius was Joseph Hémard (1880-1961), who in his lifetime was probably France’s most prolific book illustrator. His illustrations are the focus of the latest exhibit in the Yale Law Library, “‘And then I drew for books’: The Comic Art of Joseph Hémard.”

The exhibit, on display until December 15, is curated by Farley P. Katz and Michael Widener. Katz, a tax attorney from San Antonio, has built one of the world’s finest collections of Hémard’s works. Widener is the Rare Book Librarian at the Lillian Goldman Law Library.
