Marcel Marlier illustrated the stories of Martine, an icon of 20th-century French pop culture. Written by Gilbert Delahaye, there were 60 titles published with more than 65 million copies sold in French and 35 million sold in other languages.

Know a little francophile? You can buy Martine titles (in French!) at the Francophilia Amazon store.
