1995 French Large Card by SODOP

1995 One three-holed FDC landscape page, almost 8½" x 12", containing the stamps, a colored hologram-like image of La Fontaine with the animals by Odette Baillais, and a good section of prose on La Fontaine. No. 1233 S du catalogue CEF. #2451 of a limited edition. Imprimé par Editions CEF à Nice. Distribué par SO.D.O.P. $29.50 from Alexandre Przopiorski, Lyon, France, April, '99.

The chief interest on this massive page is, I believe, the Ballais' picture putting La Fontaine's head in the midst of various animal figures. I myself find it a difficult picture to read.
