Love, likes, bits and bobs – January 2013
Even if you’re not a kid, the books by André Hellé will be a joy to look at (and also a great way to start reading French too). Born in 1871, André Hellé was a jack of all (creative) trades. Illustrator, artist, children’s toys and furniture designer, and stage designer – Hellé worked in a world where imagination and storytelling ruled. Today, his work remains relatively unknown, so flipping through his books is almost like discovering a little secret to enjoy all on your own. Check out André’s work here. Until June 10, 2013, le musée du jouet de Poissy (outside of Paris) is hosting an exhibition of André Hellé’s toys and games.
