At fifteen, Cabu published his first drawing in the press. For more than sixty years, not a day without his taking his pencil. Cartoon humor, caricature, report in France and around the world, illustration, improvisation live on TV: Cabu has done it all. Invented archetypes, like the Grand Duduche and the Beauf. Share his passions for jazz and Charles Trenet. Waged relentless battles for pacifism, ecology, freedom of expression, tolerance. Cabu kept everything, sketchbooks, photos, press clippings, documentation, trial documents ... This very documented biography is written by Jean-Luc Porquet, who knew Cabu well and interviewed all his relatives, family, friends, colleagues . It also relies on incomparable archives communicated for the first time by his wife Véronique. It allows us to rediscover a designer but also an exceptional man.
