Book: Le vent est bleu
Ingenuous and Humorous
Editions Denoël, Paris, France, 2002
Behind the icy appearance of his line, the ruthless arrangement of his settings and the rigid postures of his characters, Benoît hides a secret and subversive humour detonated by his ironical captions. He dynamites our certitudes in order to reveal a world both acid and ingenuous. "The Wind is blue" assembles most of his drawings published in Paris Match and the international press.
