La bande dessinee entre la presse et le livre

La bande dessinee entre la presse et le livre is a book written by Benoît Peeters and published on November 7, 2019 by BnF Éditions. The book collects the two conferences given by Peeters during Conférences Léopold Delisle in 2019.

This conference by Benoit Peeters explores the comic strip between the press and books.

The fundamental and founding oscillation of the comic strip between the world of the press and the world of books is a major aspect of its history. There is a very memorable part linked to albums and another much more ephemeral part linked to the press. For a long time, this second aspect was less taken into account by specialists, particularly because the material was more difficult to access. The digitization of old newspapers allows us today to take full measure of them.

The book has 118 pages and 64 illustrations.
