1. 1975 Rien n'est simple
Original CoverPhaidon: Nothing is Simple

Bull Nothing is Simple

By: Phaidon

ISBN: 9780714844831 (148p.) (2006) Format: Hardcover

Nothing is simple was the first book of Sempé drawings, originally published in 1962. In this classic Sempé collection, we find a timeless mix of everyday moments and surreal situations, captured with characteristic playfulness and attention to detail. Sempé's world is populated by nosy neighbors, mischievous schoolboys and thwarted lovers, by snooty holidaymakers and crowds of frustrated commuters in the big city. In one classic series, a woman looks horrified to witness an accident involving a truck, a restaurant-front and several bystander, and rushes to her friend's house to report, not of the accident, but the fact that she saw her friend's husband stepping out of a nearby bar with another woman. These inimitable drawings and watercolors, accompanied by perfectly judged deadpan captions, are fresh, engaging and hilarious.

ISBN: 9780714846231 (166p.) (2006) Format: Hardcover

MONSIEUR LAMBERT offers a glimpse into the everyday lives and secret passions of a group of regulars at a small Parisian bistro, who see each other for lunch every day, without fail. They are creatures of habit, eating the same set meals on the same day, week in and week out. One day, however, one of their group, Monsieur Lambert, does not turn up for lunch at his usual time, and the other regulars soon turn to speculating as to the reasons for the sudden and unexpected changes in their fellow diner - it surely must be because of a woman, they conclude. Why does he develop a taste for terrine, a dish he has previously always despised?

ISBN: 9780714849799 (96p.) (2010) Format: Hardcover

Ralph Sprockett is the story of a man who knows everything there is to know about bicycles, except how to ride one. An expert bicycle mechanic, thanks to constantly crashing and subsequently having to repair bikes as a child, he is admired by everyone in town for his skill and knowledge, so much so that they have even started refering to bicycles as 'sprockets' in his honour. No one knows his deep, dark secret - not even his wife knows that the great Ralph Sprockett cannot ride a bike. When his friend Noel, who is a photographer, announces that he would like to take a picture of Ralph riding his bike down a local hill, Ralph finally has to confront his fears, with unexpectedly dramatic results. Originally published in France in 1995, Ralph Sprockett is the perfect companion to Monsieur Lambert, Sempe's earlier graphic novel.
