Raymond Bertrand

September 12, 2012
Raymond Bertrand is a somewhat obscure French illustrator and artist whose work ranges from the pornographic to science fiction. Eric Losfeld published a book with art by Bertrand titled Dessins Erotique II (with texte by Hibert Juin) in 1971 (shown here) and Bertrand did the illustrations ofor the original publications of the erotoc-pornographic Emmanuelle novels. Bertrand is a somewhat elusive and shadowy figure about whom it is hard to find biographical information. Apart from the Editions Opta illustrations for the Anne McCaffrey books work by him can also be found on the covers of several issues of the French science fiction magazines Fiction and Galaxie, published between 1968 and 1975. bertrand19-big
