Alain Gree illustrations











I've recently bought this children's book and memory card game dating from the 60s. The illustrations are by Alain Gree who I love. The memory card game has some cards the same as Eames packs of cards and the cute characters are by Alice and Martin Provensen.

Oh! I had that very set as a child! I would give anything to have it again...I have not thought of it for a good 35 years--so amazing to see something like that, and it is instantly recognizable! I'll have to look for my own, now...thanks for sharing!

I may frame some and possibly make some fridge magnets.
