A beautiful new edition of Maurice Leblanc’s classic crime capers featuring the original gentleman thief, illustrated by Vincent Mallie.
On July 15th, 1905, novelist Maurice Leblanc introduced the world to ARSENE LUPIN, a charming, clever, and debonair master thief capable of rivaling even the most popular sensational sleuth of the time, Sherlock Holmes. Through a series of 17 novels and 39 novellas, this dashing anti-hero became the inspiration for over a century’s worth of film, television, comic books, and animation hits that continue to this very day, including the recent live-action LUPIN series on Netflix and the beloved anime series LUPIN THE 3rd (which itself celebrates its 50th Anniversary this year).
Now, 115 years later, Magnetic Press is proud to offer a brand-new, beautifully illustrated edition of the first Arsène Lupin novel, ARSENE LUPIN, GENTLEMAN THIEF. This collection of the first nine novellas reintroduces the master thief for a new generation, vividly illustrated by celebrated artist Vincent Mallie.
