Produced in 1968's, here we have a classic poster from one of Frances classic illustrators, Maurice Grimaud. Grimaud illustrated a series of mini books, called I want to read, these were used in French Primary Schools in the late 1960's. The 4 mini-books were entitled George's red bike, Cécile and his dog, Gilberte and his doll Guita & The Four Seasons.
This poster is an illustration from my favorite, Gilberte And his doll Guita. The poster would have been used in the classroom as a focal point for reading and discussing the story. The poster measures 76 cm X 60cm, Produced on medium weight cream coloured paper.
In the left-hand corner are the words "Je veux lire - grands Tableaux - 1re serie and in the right-hand corner c Hachette / Rossignol
Hachette / Rossignol also created the mini books.
The poster is in good condition for its age, it has obviously got some signs of use, from being used in a French school for some time, there are some light surface marks. But this is to be expected from a poster of this age and type.
A truly wonderful find, which would look wonderful in a Children's room, or any space, if like me you love vintage illustrations.
