Jullian was a French illustrator, art historian, novelist, and dandy. My French teacher gave me this marvelous book (“Styles”) for my 15th birthday and it has been one of my very favorite publications ever since. Patrick Mauriès and I took the liberty of writing a sequel, titled Styles d’aujourd’hui (“Styles of Today").
