and I recently contributed to a french-japanese vocabulary textbook, by my former teacher Frédéric Barazer. It was published last month by Ellipses Editions. We did two covers and about 20 black and white illustrations.
This is the first cover proposition made according to the author's description, sadly it was rejected because the attitude of the cat (lazily sitting with food) didn't send the right message according to the commercials.
I posted this one because, well, it is quite cute and I actually prefer it to the second cover (validated) and prefer it a lot to the final printed version. Which....Went through the hands of a graphist particularly obsessed with the ctrl, c and v keys.
That said, you can order the book from amazon through this link : [link]
