Pre-printed Kit

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

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.

 Classic I Book Club (1:12 scale or 1" dollhouse scale) 

sample pages small

Yes the colors are as vibrant in these tiny jewel like books as they show here. I wish you could see how good the text looks, but it just doesn't look as good here in digital format. The text is re-set in a tiny readable font. News flash, the monthly subscription is as inexpensive for International customers as for U.S. customers--a mere $7.35 per month for these pre-printed (on high-end specialty papers--as are all Paper Minis) kits and that includes postage and tutorial! Click here for subscription information. You will find the bookcase/dollhouse on that page as well. So irresistible! By the way, these books are sold separately on the website at a slightly higher price.

Similar in style to the Classic I Book Club. Scrumptious artwork and clear is readable, but if you are like me you will need a magnifier!

Samples from the Vintage Collections
This subscription is handled a little differently. You can choose the pre-printed kits you want in your subscription (a minimum of 6) or just pick one at a slightly higher priced. These collections took me years of designing and I like that they all fit in little frame-able boxes (5"x7"), proving you don't need a doll house to take up your real estate! Hang them on a wall if need be. Subscribers get the CD as a sign-up bonus containing patterns for display boxes, wallpaper, some props like the fireworks stall, plus a photo tutorial as a sign-up bonus.
