Books for Trade: Vincennes, Gaston. L’Amour fouetté. Orné de douze illustrations hors-texte par Ch. Avalanche. Paris, Editions Prima,[vers1930?] . Couverture par Marilac

I have now opted to list this title with all the illustrations in an attempt to solve the mystery of the artist of the 12 plates, having already established, following conversation with Thanalie of Biblio Curiosa :- the cover for L’Amour Fouetté is signed Marilac, a pseudonym of the Italian illustrator Mario Laboccetta who worked in Paris in the 1920-30s  ,it is unlikely to be Marilac who is responsible for the other illustrations, I am tempted to think that the mysterious Ch. Avalanche might well be Wighead , although the images in this title are more spartan than Wighead’s normal work they do have similarity in form and style. You disagree? , well tell me about it by leaving a comment.


For your viewing and hopefully some information, the covers, Title page and 12 extraordinary Deco illustrations.

NOTE: If you are downloading /saving ,the images that is fine with me, however if you are using them elsewhere please have the courtesy to credit this site.

This Title is available to trade against any of my Paris Olympia Press wants.
