Hemard applied this treatment to two other legal works Code Penal (1940) and Code General des Impots Directs et Taxes Assimilees (1944). Hemard, a prolific artist, illustrator, designer and author, is best-known for his humorously illustrated editions of serious non-fiction books. (Inventory #: 65789)
