750 Years In Paris

By Vincent Mahé
Illustrated by Vincent Mahé

If you could stand still for 750 years, what could you learn about the world? It’s time to find out.

A literary graphic novel unlike anything else on the racks, 750 Years tells the story of our time, focusing on one single building in France as it sees its way through the upheavals of history. Beginning in the 13th Century and making its way towards today, this historically accurate story is the eagerly anticipated debut from Vincent Mahé.

About the author

Born in Paris, Vincent moved to Brittany at the age of 3 where he grew up cooking delicious meals for his mother and brothers alongside his father who was a great chef. He left home at the age of 16 to study Art in Rennes and moved to Paris in 2003. He then studied Animation at Gobelins and worked as a set designer in the animation industry following graduation in 2008. During this time he began to develop his own personal artworks and in 2012 took the plunge in to freelance illustration and created a co-working studio with friends. His work has been exhibited in Paris many times, first of all, in an exhibition called ‘The Parisianer’ where 100 illustrators had to imagine a cover for a fake Parisian ‘New Yorker’, as well as for a pop-up store called Condensed and for a party at the agency that represents him. His work has featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Wired, many more magazines and Nobrow #8 as well as a book cover for a book called La Librairie de la Pomme Verte (editions des Arènes). 750 Years for Nobrow is his first book.
