Les Cromagnonneries, by Auguste

Auguste was born in Paris into a Breton family. He spent most of his childhood in Brittany. He made his debut in 1956, and contributed to the magazine Tintin from 1963 to 1970. There, he created 'Les Cromagnonneries', a gag series about everyday life in prehistoric times. This strip dealt with historical events in a comical way, such as the discoveries of fire and flowers, and the invention of the wheel. Auguste moved back to Paris in 1977. He got married and settled in Lyon, where he continued to draw for advertisements until 1991. He spent his final years as a bookseller.
