Series description

Sommet de la ligne claire et de l’élégance la plus britannique, ces albums marquèrent l’invention par Floc’h et Rivière d’une bande dessinée intemporelle, adulte et pourtant incroyablement moderne.

Nées en 1977 dans les pages du journal Pilote, les aventures d’Olivia Sturgess et Francis Albany marquèrent une étape importante dans le monde de la bande dessinée en réinventant la ligne claire et en introduisant le chic anglais dans l’univers des années 70. Sir Francis Albany est critique littéraire alors qu’Olivia Sturgess est l’auteur de nombreux romans policiers anglais.

Leurs aventures sont donc des enquêtes, mais qui doivent autant à Borges, pour la complexité des énigmes et les penchants pour la mise en abîme, qu’à Alfred Hitchcock et Agatha Christie.

How do series work?

To create a series or add a work to it, go to a "work" page. The "Common Knowledge" section now includes a "Series" field. Enter the name of the series to add the book to it.

Works can belong to more than one series. In some cases, as with Chronicles of Narnia, disagreements about order necessitate the creation of more than one series.

Tip: If the series has an order, add a number or other descriptor in parenthesis after the series title (eg., "Chronicles of Prydain (book 1)"). By default, it sorts by the number, or alphabetically if there is no number. If you want to force a particular order, use the | character to divide the number and the descriptor. So, "(0|prequel)" sorts by 0 under the label "prequel."

What isn't a series?

Series was designed to cover groups of books generally understood as such (see Wikipedia: Book series). Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion. A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations, on the part of the author or publisher. For now, avoid forcing the issue with mere "lists" of works possessing an arbitrary shared characteristic, such as relating to a particular place. Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification (eg., avoid lumping Jane Austen with her continuators).

Also avoid publisher series, unless the publisher has a true monopoly over the "works" in question. So, the Dummies guides are a series of works. But the Loeb Classical Library is a series of editions, not of works.
