b1is024 ~ Macao et Cosmage
ou L'Experience de Bonheur
Published in Paris Aux Editions de la Nouvelle Revue
Francaise, (1919)

Size:
30mmw x 32mmh x 13mmd (in laminated box)

Description: 56 pages, cloth binding laminated front piece and back panel, laminated storage box. This is my first French book and I am so happy that I was able to get this many pages in one volume.

This is a very important book in the history of children’s books and was a significant break from the romantic styles of say Dulac and Rackham. What’s so astonishing is Edy was only 18 years old when he accomplished this milestone in illustrated literature. Inspired by his travels to Morocco, the colors are bold and rich. Every square folio was hand-colored with stencils known as ‘pochoir’. Unfortunately, printed on inexpensive paper and as a result it is rare to find a copy in good condition today.

Each page in this volume has been cleaned up and the colors enriched to their original state. Text was not re-set in this particular book because so much of Edy's writing was incorporated into the artwork.
