I did not know Cocteau did a children's book. I need this!

Nor did I, and so do I.

Thanks for the post!

These are great. Glo-Glo le poisson rouge is definitely my favorite.

These are just wonderful, vacapinta.

My favorite is "Histoire de Perlette" which reminds me --slightly-- of contemporary cartoonist Roz Chast.

What's stopping you?

Run them through Genuine Fractals or vectorise them in Illustrator. Easy peasy.
