It's likely that Mille Bornes will instantly conjure up memories of your childhood, its clean, colorful compositions having the ability to strongly imprint on the memory. But do you know who's behind one of France's most successful board games? As discreet as he was talented, Joseph Le Callennec (1905-1988) was nonetheless responsible for some outstanding graphic creations. While he is best known for the twenty or so games he designed, including two versions of Mille bornes, he was also behind a number of logos, illustrations and book covers. Despite the disappearance of Joseph Le Callennec's archives following the flooding of the cellar in which they were kept, Tony Durand embarked on an investigative and biographical project which, after several years of research, has enabled him to assemble a collection of objects more extensive than he had hoped, providing an insight into the career of this mysterious typographer-turned-graphic designer, creator of the design for one of the most famous board games of the 20th century.

This book accompanies the exhibition Le Callennec, as du crayon organized by Le Signe, Centre national du graphisme in Chaumont, from May 24 to July 15, 2023.
