Chausse-trape

Henri Crabières

Henri Crabières disguises what resembles a painful and violent abstract and chaotic introspection as a farce. Self-represented in his main character, he endures the gratuitous atrocities of two thugs determined to enrich themselves through his kidnapping. “Chausse-trape” is a comic book created as part of his diploma from the Paris Decorative Arts, for which he lays down his graphic foundations and narrative obsessions.

In red and black, sharp and powerful, the author develops a rich and liberating graphic vocabulary, alternating with halftones, lines, masses, and appearances of striking colors. The interactions are felt and spontaneous, just like the unfolding of the story which has undergone no modifications to preserve its freshness, transparency, and vivacity. Henri Crabières establishes himself as a true narrator-drawer, writing faces, words, movements, and settings with the same line.

This red book is printed in two-color offset on soft, raw paper, wrapped in a black and red chrome jacket, glazed. First edition of 1000 copies.
