Le Jeu de L'Oie

Hi everyone - I hope you have all been having a great week, here in Australia our week has drawn to a close with the Easter School Holidays just begun. Lots of families are heading off for a wonderful Autumn break dashing out of Sydney on a Friday night to beat the rush and making their way out of town for some down time with the family.

I myself am preparing for the Art and Design market in Wollongong which takes place next Sunday 17th April in the Wollongong Art Gallery and run by the girls from Milk Thieves, so looking forward to a busy week of finalising some works.

In the meantime I wanted to blog about some fabulous images found on Flickr from France. The first up is a Childrens Book Cover from the 1930's.

Picture cards, this one featuring an owl.

Chocolate Box lids were a collectors item - here's one by Casino.

I love this illustration of the History of Aviation depicting early hot air balloons, zeppelins, and mans first flying machines.

You may not have heard the game a Million Faces.

Letter cards...

Just love the style of these game cards from a picture matching game.

 A box lid for Le Jeu de L'Oie.

Love the subtle colours in this picture. 

This fabulous jigsaw puzzle of France pieces are the provinces. 

I find this adorable - an illustration of an old electricity metre!

Have a great weekend and pop on over here for more collections of ephemera from France.
