About The Le Reve de Jean Valjean 5 of 8

The Dream of Jean Valjean written by Victor Hugo was illustrated in 1974 by Lars Bo.

"The original etchings of LARS BO, printed in the workshops of JJJ Rigal in Fontenay-Aux-Roses, testify by the depth and sharpness of their realization of the dramatic intensity of the text of Victor Hugo."
