Nicholas is the first in a series of books, newly translated from the French by Anthea Bell and illustrated by Sempé, made famous by his cartoons for the New Yorker. A hugely popular book in France with schoolchildren, each tells of Nicholas's various adventures. I designed the cover in linen, with a cold enamelled badge set into it ([4] and [5]). Nicholas has received critical acclaim, including this article from Publishing News February 2006.
