Bady, Carlos: La Journée de Mado
Galerie Lutetia Paris c1932
pochoirs; image 20 x 15 cm each. soft cover split in lower centrefold, some off-set; plates clean and in exc. cond.
A most charming depiction of an evening in the life of a young French girl, Mado: in ‘Mado babille’, she’s been seen on the telephone, no doubt arranging a date for the evening. The next step is getting ready: ‘Mado se maquille’. Eventually, Mado has got dressed - Mado s’habille’ and is ready to enjoy the evening. On her return, she is getting undressed: Mado se déshabille. Throughout the vening, she is being assisted by two cute little cherubs who make sure that Mado looks like the Belle of the Ball.
The four loose illustrations are in a paper portfolio, as issued. First edition.
