Louis Jou

Louis Jou (1882 - 1968) was a twentieth century etcher and wood engraver. Louis Jou illustrated a large number of books in France. His original etchings and wood engravings appeared in books authored by Andre Gide, Balery, Victor Hugo, Gourmont, Wilde, Cervantes and many more. Louis Jou was so successful in this artistic medium that he set up his own publishing house in Paris in order to gain greater freedom for the creation of his books.
