Satrapi enjoyed the art of both writing and drawing and felt combining them were better than choosing one or the other. This is how, inspired, Satrapi created a book of black-and-white comic strips about living in Tehran from ages six to 14, and then wrote a second volume chronicling her events in Austria from 14 up until her return to Iran at age 18, ending with her college years at 25.Since Persepolis was originally written in French, it was published in France in two volumes in 2000 and 2001, and eventually appeared in the United States in 2003 and 2004. In 2007, The Complete Persepolis was published in a single volume, combining Persepolis 1: The Story of a Childhood and Persepolis 2: The Story of a Return. The books can either be purchased as single volumes or as 'one' volume combining both stories.
