Alain Gree- Nature

Posted by Picasa

I was so excited a few months ago when I heard that Alain Gree was going to be putting out a few new books! I ordered them quickly for one of my daughters for Christmas.  In a future post I will show the board books by Alain Gree that I got for her, and I will also show the PLOC magazines that I have by this amazing illustrator.  Alain Gree was born in France and has published over 300 books. Most of these were published in the 1960's.  They totally still have that fun groovy feel!   Check out this YouTube video of Alain Gree at work:

  1. Just beautiful!!!!!! Can't wait to see the others you got!! this is simply gorgeous.

  2. Fabulous illustrations! They remind me a little of Richard Scarry - I think it must be because of the bright colours.

    1. Yes they have that same cheerfulness to them, don't they?

  3. I totally love Alain Grée's illustrations! I did not know he was going to make more books! Hurray to that! Can't wait to see what you will post about him! What is a PLOC magazine?

  4. Love, love, LOVE this! Adding it to the must have list:)

  5. Wow I love the illustrations. I am realising how much I love vintage books through your site, so thanks again for linking it into the kidlit blog hop. I am going to put them on the to buy list. Cheers Julie Grasso

  6. I was trying to think about how to describe the illustrations and that's totally it: it's the groovin' 60's! Love it! Can't believe he's still pumping out books - how fantastic! Thanks for linking into the Kid Lit Blog Hop once again Leanne. :D
