Jeanne Ramel-Cals 'Mana'

Hey Bloggers!

I thought I'd finish my journey into the past with my Great Great Great Grandmother (wow! that's alot of great!): Jeanne Ramel-Cals or Jeanne Gibert by her maiden name, she was also known by her nickname 'Mana'.

Mana was a famous Writer/Poet/Journalist and Illustrator, her illustrations which I'm particularly fond of remind me of my favourite artist: Sempé. Having discovered her work only recently I'm very happy to share it with you! Here's her Mana's Bio if you are curious (in French sorry).
