The funeral of designer Sempé, who died Thursday at age 89, will take place on Friday August 19 in Paris, his relatives told AFP on Saturday. A mass will take place at 2 p.m. in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés church, followed by burial in the Montparnasse cemetery.

Great French master of humor and poetry, a mixture of derision and modesty, Sempé has traced since the 1950s a work full of good nature: the famous children’s albums of the “Little Nicholas» and press cartoons, in Paris Match or L’Express or the prestigious American magazine New Yorker. The announcement of his death on Thursday sparked an outpouring of tributes.
