About the publication

In 2010, the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain presented Mœbius-Transe-Forme, the first important solo exhibition in Paris devoted to the work of Jean Giraud, alias Gir or Mœbius. A veritable survey of Mœbius’ oeuvre, the book published in conjunction with the exhibition includes some 250 documents that trace the entire career of Mœbius as both author and illustrator. With its mythical drawings, original black-and-white plates, compositions in hypnotic colors and unpublished storylines, this edition offers passage into the mœbiesque world. It also includes a text-interview by Michel Cassé and an anthology of texts on the theme of metamorphosis collected by Alberto Manguel presenting a unique literary meander through the polymorphic universe of Mœbius.
