Early in 1900, Jouve produces a great number of drawings to illustrate ‘L’assiette au beurre’.. The illustration of Rudyard Kipling’s Jungle Book marks the beginning of a career that will make him known as one of the greatest illustrators of the XXth century.
He illustrates more than 20 works, that are today very sought-after by bibliophiles.
For these illustrations he collaborates with Schmied, then with Perrichon, Beltrand, Bouchet, Haasen.
