Toute l'actualité du petit prince

An original illustration for sale !


© Martin Bureau, AFP | An original watercolour illustration from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s « The Little Prince » to be auctioned off in Paris on December 9

 

An original watercolour illustration from the Little Prince is auctioned in Paris this week.

The signed sketch, which appeared on page 17 of the original 1943 version of the story, is expected to fetch between 400,000 and 500,000 euros ($500,000-600,000), according to auction house Artcurial.

The illustration shows the Turkish astronomer who discovered Asteroid B612, the Little Prince’s planet, pointing at a blackboard of equations and mathematical diagrams.

By far Saint-Exupéry’s most famous work, « The Little Prince » has been translated into more than 270 languages and has touched countless readers around the world.

Artcurial said it is the most widely read book in the world after the Bible.

The book is a series of parables in which a boy prince recounts his adventures among the stars to a downed pilot on Earth. It was published in English and French in New York in 1943.

Himself a pilot, Saint-Exupéry died mysteriously at the age of 44 while on a reconnaissance mission during World War II in 1944. He did not live to see the book’s publication in France following the end of the war in 1946.

The watercolour sketch, measuring 21.3 by 23.9 centimetres, is to go under the hammer on December 9.


The Little Prince : the movie trailer !


Here’s the first trailer for the upcoming animated film The Little Prince, based on the cult kids’ book/philosophical tome/allegory machine by Antoine De Saint-Exupery. It is beautiful and it is lovely,  but it’s entirely in French.

The film – directed by Mark Osborne (The Spongebob Squarepants Movie, Kung Fu Panda) and featuring the all-star vocal talents of Mackenzie Foy, Rachel McAdams, James Franco, Marion Cotillard, Benicio Del Toro and Ricky Gervais – will be released in two versions: one in French, and one in English.

It hits cinemas in October next year, and an English trailer’s no doubt minutes away.

Sculptures for the heart


arnaud“One sees clearly only with the heart. What is essential is invisible to the eye,” says the fox to the little prince in the French classic. True to these words, the Antoine de Saint-Exupéry Youth Foundation is planning to launch a unique pioneering project of three-dimensional sculptures based on the theme of The Little Prince, in what will be a world first. This collection, created by French artist, Arnaud Nazare-Aga, will also be adapted for the visually impaired. This artistic attempt to bring Saint-Exupéry’s illustrations to life for those who otherwise would not have access them – the visually impaired – will be presented for the first time in Singapore at the French cultural festival, “Voilah!” in May 2015. Proceeds from the sales of these unique art pieces will benefit the Foundation’s philanthropic activities in favour of the education of disadvantaged children in Southeast Asia.
