Book cover: 'La Conversation' by Jean d'Ormesson

Just received a copy of a french language novel I illustrated the cover for - 'La Conversation' written by Jean d'Ormesson. It revolves around  an imaginary conversation between Napoleon Bonaparte and Jean-Jacques Regis de CambacĂ©rès, his consul. The book explores the tension between Napoleon's republican revolutionary spirit and his desire of power. (So I was told by Heloise d'Ormesson, the author's daughter - my French is nowhere near good enough to read it!)
