En 1960 exactement, sous la sobre bannière de l’«Encyclopédie Casterman», paraissait une série de portraits de villes illustrés, spécialement conçus pour la jeunesse. Plébiscite immédiat, tant le travail d’illustration de ces ouvrages manifestait de talent, de modernité, de souffle, d’humour et de poésie. L’auteur des images, le Tchécoslovaque Miroslav Sasek (1916-1980), allait s’imposer dès lors comme une référence majeure de l’illustration. Aujourd’hui encore, ces beaux albums n’ont pas pris une ride ; inventifs, colorés et souvent souriants, ils demeurent remarquables de maîtrise et d’élégance. C’est la raison pour laquelle Casterman en propose aujourd’hui une nouvelle édition en fac-similés. Trois albums concrétisent le lancement de cette initiative, consacrés chacun à une grande métropole européenne : Londres, Paris et Rome. Les ouvrages sont strictement conformes à l’édition d’origine, à un ajout près : une page additionnelle en fin d’album indique les principaux changements ou les nouveaux monuments apparus depuis cinquante ans.

Miroslav Sasek

Né en 1916 à Prague, où il étudie l’architecture, Miroslav Sasek fuit la Tchécoslovaquie en 1948 et s’établit à Munich. Il travaille quelques années pour Radio Free Europe avant de se consacrer à la peinture et à l’illustration. Sa série de portraits de villes (10 titres au total) et de pays (5 titres) pour la jeunesse connaît un succès international et reçoit de nombreux prix. Quatre de ces ouvrages deviennent des dessins animés. Miroslav Sasek disparaît en 1980.

The Maastricht Treaty of 1992 removed the word « economic » from the Treaty of Rome’s official title and, in 2009, the Treaty of Lisbon renamed it the « Treaty on the functioning of the European Union ». The Maastricht reforms also saw the creation of the European Union’s three pillar structure, of which the European Community was the major constituent part. Following the 2005 referenda, which saw the failed attempt at launching a European Constitution, on 13 December 2007 the Lisbon treaty was signed. The Lisbon reforms resulted in the merging of the three pillars into the reformed European Union. The Treaty of Paris was an international treaty based on international law, designed to help reconstruct the economies of the European continent, prevent war in Europe and ensure a lasting peace.
