Overview

The stroke of his brush is almost as sharp as his wit, but the result is always playful and droll. Jean-Philippe Delhomme is a prolific name in the world of illustration and often described as the Parisian answer to the smart cartoons that appear in the New Yorker. His instantly recognizable style is world-renowned in a range of media—from chic television ads for Saab to the boutique campaigns for Barneys and fashion advertising. The Cultivated Life, the first-ever English compilation of Delhomme’s work, is a celebration of his gently satiric musings of "first-world" problems. Drawing from the trials and tribulations of the contemporary lifestyle—the design addict cautiously circling the latest modern furniture piece in an upscale boutique, or finding the perfect outfit to convey one’s current philosophy—Delhomme chicly illustrates the humor in all that surrounds him. This monograph includes over 100 illustrations and an insightful essay about Delhomme’s work.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"It is witty compilation of "satiric musings" on artistic, literary and decorating dramas and the first published in English! C'est magnifique!" ~HabituallyChic.com

"Now‚ when fewer of us can afford to indulge in buying all the things we once took for granted‚ Delhomme’s dry wit – and beautiful illustrations – are that much more valuable." ~ModernTonic.com

“He combines the wit one might find in a New Yorker cartoon (if you’re lucky) with a madcap painterly genius that can capture a personality in a few brushstrokes.” ~GQ Blog

"Jean-Phillippe Delhomme is synonymous with everything that is chic..." ~LePetiteChic.com

"Interior design mishaps, art world snobbism and literature elitism are portrayed with tongue in cheek humor..." ~StyleBeat.com

"...captures the essence of the conflicts and reasoning of the decorating, art and literary worlds that we travel in..." ~DevineLife.com

"...urbane satire of complete self-absorption..." ~MediaBeat.com
