Machinistes (Les)

Les Machinistes is a description of Mylos' Gwendoline Quarter, by François Schuiten and Claude Renard.

The introduction is by Jean Luc Fromental and tells the story that the pages in this book were made for the Gwendoline movie by Just Jaeckin. But the end result had not much to do anymore with the images Schuiten and Renard made. This book is about a movie that is never made.


  • 1984 French edition by Humanoïdes Associés
