Imagerie d'Epinal

Imagerie d'Epinal

Imagerie d'Epinal were pictorial
broadsheets that told simple tales done by
the Imagerie Pellerin of France, and
reprinted by the Humoristic Publishing Co.
in Kansas, Missouri. These are important
for the history of comics and printing. In
Father of the Comic Strip: Rodolphe
Topffer, David Kunzle compares Tbpffer's
"kind of graphic naivete and that of the truly
unschooled and awkward Imagerie
d'Epinal" (77). Kunzle argues "the
subsequent history of the comic strip
occupies this middle groudm but inclining
more to Topffer than imagerie populaire"
(77). Kunzle's overall analysis places
Topffer alongside the likes of Gustave
Dor6, William Hogarth, Willhelm Busch,
and George Cruikshank in publications like
Punch, Le Charivari, L'lllustration, and
Illustrated London News.
