Les M├ęsaventures de Ludovic, by Rip

Rip was a French illustrator who was mainly active during the 1880s. He drew for magazines like Comodia illustré, L'Eclipse, La Silhouette and La Jeunesse Amusante. He made picture stories for La Caricature, before becoming one of the artists for the picture story prints by Imagerie Quantin in Paris (including 'Les Mésaventures de Ludovic', 'Un projet téméraire'). Quite unusual for his time, Rip's style of experimenting with panel lay-outs resembles that of Winsor McCay in his 'Little Nemo' pages from 15 years later.
