Overview

What happens when everyday life flirts with everlasting art

Beautifully constructed in a semi-classical style, this graphic novel features a light-spirited romantic story. This latest installment in the Louvre collection tells the tale of a museum director in a waking dream after his retirement dinner where he wanders the vast halls of the museum before eloping with a muse. The magic of the vast museum melds with the ethereal storytelling to create a unique graphic novel that stands as an unforgettable experience.

Reviews

"A charmer akin to such films as Jacques Rivette's Celine and Julie Go Boating, Eric Rohmer's Rendezvous in Paris, and those of Durieux's acknowledged master, Jean Cocteau." —Booklist (March 2013)

"Anyone who sees art as something more than a rectangular object on a wall will be, well, enchanted. Highly recommended for all print collections." —www.LibraryJournal.com (Starred Review)

"Every one of the volumes to date in the Louvre series has been an art and comics lover's treat: An Enchantment does not prove an exception." —Bill Sherman, Seattle Post Intelligencer
