Bofa's friend, the French novelist Pierre Mac Orlan said of him: "Gus Bofa is above all a writer who chose drawing to achieve his goals. A text by Bofa, a drawing by Bofa, are constructed in the same material and both are animated by this same ray of humorous poetry which includes everything that holds a place between life and death". This book was published posthumously, as Bofa died in 1968.
