Gri-Gri Juice

1960? 'Le Lièvre et la Tortue,' Buvard #2 d'une collection illustrant les 'Fables de La Fontaine.' Gri-gri, le vrai jus de fruits aux vitamines naturelles. Illustration signed by Polotec. Red and black on white. 8¼' x 5¼'. $5 from Mme Denise Debuigne, Rennes, France, May, '02.

The sketch takes up two-thirds of this blotter. The hare lies by the roadside with a book in his hand and a flower in his mouth. The tortoise crawls up to the goal line. Of course I would like to know how many blotters there were in this collection and get hold of the rest!

1960? 'La Cigale et la Fourmi,'  Buvard #3 d'une collection illustrant les 'Fables de La Fontaine.' Gri-gri, le vrai jus de fruits aux vitamines naturelles. Illustration signed by Polotec. Red and black on pink paper. 8¼' x 5¼'. $5 from Mme Denise Debuigne, Rennes, France, May, '03.

The sketch again takes up two-thirds of this blotter. The ant, dressed in a house dress and kerchief and carrying a spoon in her hand, addresses the jaunty cicada as he holds a lute or guitar. Of course I still would like to know how many blotters there were in this collection and get hold of the rest!
