Comments of the Jury:
“Named after a real street in France, this book follows the history of just one side of the street over more than a century, from 1890 to 2018. The book’s subtitle, au fil des migrations, is a clue to the book’s main idea: how migrants enrich communities. Each spread introduces new characters from many countries who contribute to the life of the street in different ways. The horizontal layout is functional to the streetscape subject, the style referencing ligne claire drawing. The clever, clearly defined scenarios use a variation-on-theme technique to show the passing of time, inviting the reader to linger over changing details like clothing, car design, advertisements and shop signs.”
