Alidor - 4 original India ink illustrations - Size: 13 x 15 cm.
Included is the issue of “le petit vingtième” of 31 July 1933, with cover by Jam
Paul Jamin, known as Jam (1911-1995) and Hergé met at the Institut Saint-Boniface and reconnected through the “Le Petit vingtième”, a supplement to the very Catholic “Le Vingtième Siècle” from 1928 onward. He published many illustrations there and took over strips like “l’Oncle Jo”.
Drawn more to political satire, he left ‘Le Petit Vingtième’ in 1935 for ‘Le Pays Réel’, ‘L’Oasis’, and then in 1939-1940, ‘L’Ouest’, a neutralist organization, where he again met up with Tintin’s creator. Paul Jamin then decided to lend his talents to papers supporting the New Order like ‘Le pays réel’ and the ‘Brüsseler Zeitung’.
After the liberation, he was condemned to death and then pardoned in 1951. He joined “Pan”, the weekly magazine founded in 1945, where he signed as Alidor.
