Fun French Friday

It's Friday: time to relax and shake off the stress for the weekend. And we mean literally shake off the stress! Find a place to go out and dance or dance to your MP3 player at home if you're too shy.

The SEM Collection offers an amazing series of characters dancing, playing roulette, or having dinner out with friends. These illustrations by French artist and caricaturist Georges Goursat, also known as SEM, are part of four different books depicting the French Belle Epoque, all available at the UH Digital Library. Check them out and you'll surely get in the mood for the weekend!

Eye popping!


Three figures


Dancing and sweating


Poker and games

Visit the UH Digital Library to see the complete books by SEM, all full of funny caricatures and French humor!
