Materials - French storybook

Jolies Fables & Contes de Fée. Written by Marcelle Vérité and illustrated by Gyo Fujikawa. This little treasure was published in 1972 and has 35 stories and nursery rhymes, including little red riding hood, puss in boots, the ugly duckling and many more.

Condition: The book was in a reasonable shape but a number of the pages were damaged. It also looks like something or someone has been chewing on the corner of it.

When I found this book I was immediately drawn to the amazing illustrations. There are both, colour and black and white drawings in the books. The illustrations are vibrant and colorful. Due to the size of the illustrations, these pages were begging to be made into larger greeting cards. Because of the large images, they are perfect for the cards, as the image extends to the back of the card as well.

Cards are available in my Etsy shop
