About the Author

Jessie Hartland is the author and illustrator of the highly acclaimed graphic biography Bon Appétit: The Delicious Life of Julia Child, which the New York Times described as “bursting with exuberant urban-naïf gouache paintings and a hand-lettered text that somehow manages to recount every second of Child’s life.” Her illustrations have appeared in newspapers and magazines throughout the world, including the New York Times, Bon Appétit, Martha Stewart Living, Real Simple, and Travel and Leisure. She is also a commercial artist whose work can be seen on ceramics and fabric, as well as in advertisements and store windows. She lives in New York City with her family. Learn more at
