A gorgeous collection of handwritten French documents from the 1800s - sepia script in a delicious range of styles, with swirls and curls galore. And in honour of St. Valentine, all the covers are scrumptious pinks!
The draw for this giveaway will take place on February 14 - leave a comment between now and then for a chance to win.
If you would like two chances to win, leave a comment on Instagram as well.
Details from volume 2 of La France Maritime, published in the mid-1800s, and full to bursting with engravings.
This particular volume is falling apart. It seems that a previous owner squished plums or spiders, or some other mysterious (but juicy) small objects between the pages. A heavily damaged volume leaves me free to snip the best bits and pieces for my little collage project. No guilt. No crimes committed.
I will post the details of the February Giveaway in the next few days ... handwritten script ... frothy pink covers ... a Valentine for French Ephemera Lovers!
