Georges Méliès,
the magician of the cinema

Zéno Bianu, Julia Perrin
When Georges Méliès, a famous illusionist, invented the cinema, a whole new world of magic appeared... made up of a thousand and one trick visual effects.
  • Zéno Bianu Author of a multiform work that questions poetry and plastic arts, it is as a poet that Zéno Bianu evokes Georges Méliès’ life, as a fellow magician would.

  • Julia Perrin Having recently graduated as a graphic artist, Julia Perrin’s work is nourished by images and travel. She uses here her talent to tell us visually about the life of Catherine Kousmine and that of Georges Méliès.

We speak of it!
  • A little book illustrated with beautiful wash drawings and paper cut-outs by Julia Perrin, whose in-48 format will please the small hands of children. (…) This work is a useful tool for preparing or continuing the viewing of silent films.

  • Julia Perrin’s illustrations are little, poetic, fairy touches just like the dream-maker director.
