Bought last summer at a flea market in the Provence, France.

I recently found this treasure at a flea market. Unfortunately just the board. It's definately old, but I was not able to determine the year it was published. The illustrations look rather victorian. Anyone have a clue?

I've been busy working on my portfolio website. It's finally done! Of course I'll refresh it from time to time, as soon as I have documented new work.
If you're interested in checking it out, you can find it here.
From now on the blog 'my absent mind' will mostly show sketches, the process and expos.

The weirdest thing, I don't remember any particular books or stories from my childhood. What I do remember are illustrations in books and I especially remember certain illustration styles. This book is a good example of an illustration style I clearly remember. The softness, the use of colour and most of all how the girls and the goose are illustrated.
Illustrated by Belgian illustrator Marcel Marlier.
Original title is: 'L'oie Eugénie et Snif le lapin' by Jeanne Dethise and Marcel Marlier (Casterman)

I have a few more vintage postcards which I'd like to share!
I always look for the postcards which were actually sent and have text on them. This one is particularly sweet. A mother writes to her son who's away from home for the holiday.
Hopefully you'll have a warm and sunny holiday!
