a book of fairy tales from the fifties, beautifully illustrated by russian born artist hélène guertik. from maptitefabrique
this tablecloth belonged to my grandmother, i think it’s from the sixties (mint condition). it’s pretty big, about 1.5m². i’m planning on having it framed because i love it so. made by the coca cola company! at least they’re good for something.
in my early days i was employed as a science teacher at riverside school … my negatives and photographs sat mouldering in the back of my garage for 30 years before the wonders of the digital age allowed me to rescue them.
family friends found this book in a vintage market in geneva, switzerland – of all places. now it has returned to sunny south african shores. i think it was printed in the fourties / fifties (no date unfortunately), though the postcards inside are all probably from the turn of the century. i love the cover. more at my flickr
