“A la lettre – Une histoire de l’illustration“, the main exhibition located in the annex, takes you on a journey through the history of illustration, from the first colportage works, through folk imagery, to the youth illustration of today. You’ll then gain an insight into the evolution of drawing, which for a long time made it possible to “read” without knowing how to decipher letters, then to understand letters, to learn words, before becoming a history in its own right. The second part of the exhibition is called “ABC, the Fabulous Alphabet” and will particularly appeal to children. The plates from the book ABC by Marion Arbona, children’s illustrator, are to be discovered. They take you on a graphic journey around letters, tinged with bright, cheerful colors where everyone will have fun playing with words and drawings.”Animals, fruits, objects interlock: a host of details that offer everyone the chance to invent a thousand and one funny and wacky stories.” workshops and game booklets are available on site.From June 24 to October 1, 2023.
