Welcome !!!

This is Paris, Miroslav Sasek, 1959.

My Vintage Avenue is a blog which aim is to show you a selection of artists I've chosen from what I call "The Golden Age" of design and illustration : The 1950s and 1960s.
Throughout your visit, you'll be discovering illustrated books, especially children's books from my personal collection, as well as biographies, vintage posters, fabrics, antiques that I found here and there, going from a whole bunch of things to subtle graphics, very typical of that period. 
Like all blogs, this one needs your comments and sometimes your knowledge so please, feel free to enrich its content and to make "Our Vintage Avenue" alive !!!
