This book presents the official text of the French Code Penal with witty, and often mildly erotic, color pochoir illustrations. It is a sequel to Hemard's Code Civil: Livre Premier, Des Personnes. In 1944 Hemard issued another legal work: Code General des Impots Directs et Taxes Assimilees. Hemard, a prolific artist, illustrator, designer and author, is best-known for his humorously illustrated editions of serious non-fiction books. Like the other books, the Code Penal was issued in larger numbered and trade editions on different types of paper. The rare Japan-paper copies are the most desirable.
