Written and illustrated by Andres Franquin. Published in France, 1982. Dupuis, publishers.

Gaston 14, La Saga Des Gaffes, written and drawn by cartoonist André Franquin, contains 44 strips previously published in Spirou magazine. The book features the humorous adventures of Gaston, a clumsy and lazy office worker, and his conflicts with his boss Prunelle, his colleague Longtarin, and his potential client De Maesmeker. The title refers to the series of blunders and mishaps that Gaston causes throughout the story.

Andres Franquin (1924 - 1997) was a Belgian cartoonist best known for his creations Gaston and Marsupilami, as well as his work on Spirou et Fantasio, a popular comic strip that he took over from Jijé in 1946 and developed for more than two decades. He was one of the main figures of the Marcinelle school, a style of comics that emphasized humor, dynamism and expressiveness. He also explored darker themes in his later series Idées noires, which reflected his personal struggles with depression and disillusionment.
