Recently purchased in Spain, from a rare book and poster dealer whose collection includes some unusual gems, like this one. Evidently printed in the early 1920s as either a children's book or a humorous book of fables for adults, the images and colours were so compelling that it forced me to liberate it from Spain and bring it to L'Affichiste. On each sheet the colours literally jump off the page - the printing is precise and the characters are so joyful that we feel these pieces would look great in a child's room, an environment where kitsch is celebrated, or even a kitchen. There is something about this collection which is both naive and sophisticated... we have a few sheets from the same collection, and they can all be viewed on this site.
