One of the greatest masters of the illustrated book, Antoine de Saint Exupery has been well known for his artistic and literary talents ever since the publication of The Little Prince in 1943. It is less well known that from childhood he decorated his letters, notebooks, journals, and diaries (and later his manuscripts) with small drawings, caricatures, cartoons, and visual puzzles, very few of which have ever been published.
Now this remarkable anthology invites the reader to rediscover the life and work of one of the twentieth century's most important writers through his most beautiful and artful drawings and manuscripts. Excerpts from Saint Exupery's letters, diaries, and journals-as well as from his published writings-illuminate his experience flying for the postal service, his World War II military experience, and his exile in America. Facsimiles of his personal writings and of his corrections to original manuscripts are reproduced along with examples of the drawings, cartoons, and sketches with which he decorated almost every scrap of his personal writings. All of his writings and designs display his keen fascination with the sky and his passion for the desert and for solitude.
