Representing French Florida (1564-65): from 16th-century prints to graphic novels.

The graphic novelist Jean Dytar, on the occasion of the Bodmer Lab festival, 2018, gave a riveting presentation on his work for the creation of Florida, published that year with Éditions Delcourt. Florida both draws inspiration from, and tells the story of, prints from the Theodor de Bry Collection, selected from the Martin Bodmer Foundation’s holdings and digitised by the Bodmer Lab.
