Happy Birthday to Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (1900–1944), author of The Little Prince , his most famous work. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry was featured on the 50 Franc bank note in 1993–graphic design shown here.
The Little Prince is the fourth most-translated book in the world and was voted the best book of the 20th century in France. The book itself is filled with delightful watercolor illustrations, by the author himself. It has since been translated into more than 250 languages and dialects (as well as Braille), and selling nearly two million copies annually with sales totaling over 140 million copies worldwide, it has become one of the best-selling books ever published.http://www.thelittleprince.com/
