Je Découpe.

Parain, Nathalie (illus.)

Paris: Flammarion, 1931. Small quarto. (24)pp., + (10)ff. First edition. Features eleven full-page illustrations showing natural and household scenes as sample collage compositions, along with glossy decoupage paper in five colors for children to create the scenes for themselves. This activity book for children was one of two published by artist Nathalie Parain in 1931, revolutionizing visual art in children's publishing. Parain's work encouraged children to use their imaginations by experimenting with shapes and colors to create their own art, and eventually sparked the popular children's series Albums de Père Castor. Bound in colored pictorial wrappers; original decoupage papers intact. Very fine copy of this scarce work, with some tanning and the slightest edgewear. Together with: Parain, Nathalie. My Cut-Out Pictures. London, Tate Publishing, 2014. Small quarto. This newly published English version is in very fine condition. Item #25954
