Cati Baur (born November 2, 1973) is a French artist and editor.

Life & Career Edit

Baur was born in Geneva, Switzerland in 1973. After earning a Master of Visual Arts at the Sorbonne, she worked briefly as a bookseller. Her big break into the comics industry was as a package handler for the publisher Delcourt; from there, she worked her way up to assistant editor.

In 2004, she started a diary webcomic blog under the pseudonym "Princess Capiton". While working on what was intended to be her first book, Vacance, she decided to quit smoking, which ended up inspiring her actual first book, J'arrête de fumer, published by Delcourt in 2007. Vacance was eventually published in 2009, also by Delcourt.

In 2011, the first of her adaptations of writer Malika Ferdjoukh's Quatre sœurs novels was published at Delcourt, but plans to publish the rest of the series there fell through. In 2014, the publisher Rue de Sèvres reissued the first volume and has also published the subsequent volumes.

Her influences include Claire Bretécher and Will Eisner.
