I’m working on some illustrations for a wedding guide, and for inspiration, I’m using the images in these books by 1940s popular illustrator Raymond Peynet .
Ever since I studied French at school, using the a la Page series, I’ve been crazy about this style of illustration, so I’m pleased to get a chance to try it out myself. Once the guide is published, I’ll show you what I came up with. In the meantime, here are some of my favourites from Peynet:
I discovered there’s an online shop selling Peynet memorabilia and books, but I have to say that the things I see there don’t capture the simple charm of these books.
