About the Author
James Prunier was born in 1959 in Oran, Algeria. He went to the Epinal Art School and then studied Fine Arts at Nancy. After winning an art competition organised by the Centre for Cultural Action at Angoulême in 1981, he moved to Paris. In 1982 he published his first illustrated book with Gallimard. A decade later, he is named the "Official painter of the skies," after the publication of his History of Aviation series. In 2000, The French mail service commissions him to carry out "Aerial adventures," a work inspired by the four stamps that he designed between 1997 and 2000, based on around the theme of the airmail service. James Prunier is the illustrator of Dinosaurs, Trees, and Elephants in the My First Discovery series.
