Vintage poster French children's classroom 1960's Maurice Grimaud
$61.84Ask a question
Produced in 1968, here we have a classic poster from one of Frances classic illustrators, Maurice Grimau, who passed away just a couple of years ago. Grimaud illustrated a series of mini books, called I want to read, these were used in French Primary Schools in the late 1960s. The 4 mini-books were entitled George's red bike, Cécile and his dog, Gilberte and his doll Guita & The Four Seasons.
This is a double-sided poster, which is rather nice as you can always have a change around, as both illustrations are just lovely. On one side an illustration of children playing in the street, and to the reverse an image of children playing on bikes, this side has a little more wear, and there are some pen marks which can be seen clearly in the photos provided.
The poster is an illustration of my favourite, Gilberte And his doll Guita. The poster would have been used in the classroom as a focal point for reading and discussing the story.
This is a large poster measuring 76 cm X 60cm, Produced on heavyweight 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, and a few tiny tears to the edge, consider that this poster is over 50 years old and has been used, so like I say there are some surface marks to the paper, and the edges have signs of age. This really is a truly wonderful find, which would look wonderful in a Children's room, or any space, if like me you love vintage illustrations.
