Yale Law Library exhibit: “The Comic Art of Joseph Hemard”

Joseph Hémard (1880-1961), was in his lifetime one of the most prolific French 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 showcases eight of the 183 illustrations in Hémard’s Tax Code, donated to the Yale Law Library by Farley P. Katz, a tax attorney from San Antonio, who has one of the world’s finest collections of Hémard’s works, and other books from the Yale Law Library’s Rare Book Collection. You can find more information about the exhibit at the Yale Law Library Rare Books Blog.
