By Eric Cantona
The Manchester United legend succinctly shares his view of life through his own drawings and captions, with characteristic wit and wordplay.
On the field or off, Eric 'The King' Cantona has always been known as an artist. Passionate about painting and photography from a very young age, he more recently took to writing, drawing and sketching out his thoughts in small Moleskine diaries. This book is the reproduction of his notebooks.
Through these never-before-seen drawings, in his faux-naive style, Eric Cantona questions every aspects of the world around us - whether it's love, death, absurdity or society. With his trademark wit and wordplay, Cantona interrogates our paradoxes and contradictions, and the absurdity of the world as only he knows how.
These notebooks are as funny as they are poetic and philosophical. But foremost, they're an ode to living, loving, sharing and contemplation.
Eric Cantona was born in 1966. A former football player, and a legend at Manchester United to this day, he is renowned far beyond the world of sports. An artist, painter, actor and producer, he has featured in many plays and films, including Ken Loach's Looking for Eric in 2009. His directness, commitment to social justice and sincerity make him one of the most unique personalities of our time.
