Lille Braderie Visual Feast...



Sorry, bit of a cop-out post today! However, I found this cute cardboard childrens' book the other day at the 'Lille Braderie/Brocante' and have since posted it on Etsy.The Lille event is rather famous and has literally been going for centuries. The first weekend of September each year the centre of Lille, in Northern France, transforms into the most amazing and enormous street market you can imagine. You can buy anything from Saussison to shirts and everything in between. My intention was to take my camera and share this madness visually but I forgot it! oooooops°°°°. My advice; never rely on an airhead artist better Google Lille Braderie for images should you so desire...



Post Script: put this up on Etsy and it sold within 5 minutes, happy but sad as what a typographic gem...
