The Lovers Keepsake

I picked this gem up in a secondhand book shop in Adelaide my last trip down before Christmas last year.  I think I struck gold, it is simply gorgeous.

Raymond Peynet was born in Paris, France in 1908 and died in 1999.  He was a freelance artist and illustrator, working for several magazines. In 1942, he came up with the characters of 'Les Amoureux', 'The Lovers'.  He drew over 6000 pictures of 'The Lovers' and now I have a few of them myself. They are quirky, fun and sweet and often a bit cheeky. - just gorgeous

this is one of my favourites, something romantic
