Denis Dubois est, comme il le dit lui-même, "manufacteur d'images". Ses vignettes détournent l'imagerie populaire et les dessins d'almanach de la Belle Époque.
Medieval Cat Names: In medieval England domestic cats were known as Gyb – the short form of of Gilbert – and that name was also popular for individual pet cats. Meanwhile in France they were called Tibers or Tibert was generic name fo domestic cat in France – Tibert the Cat was one of the characters in the Reynard the Fox animal fables. Tybalt in Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is named after the cat in Reynard the Fox (and is called 'Prince of Cats' by Mercutio in reference to this).
