Toilers of the Sea, the Illustrated Work
Toilers of the Sea, the Illustrated Work

The novel "Toilers of the Sea", written during the author's exile in Guernsey, is a magnificent example of Victor Hugo's talents as both writer and illustrator. His illustrations cleverly reinforce the dramatic and poetic effects of the novel as he crafts this ode to the sea in words and drawings.
"I dedicate this book to the rock of hospitality and freedom, in the corner of the ancient Norman lands where the noble little people of the sea live, to the island of Guernsey, harsh and sweet, my current refuge and my likely resting place."
Victor Hugo (1802-1885)
Paris, Bibliothèque nationale de France (BnF)
