An early birthday present to myself








I could not resist these 1939 Lepage-Medvey chromolithographs when I saw them in David Chamberlain's shop on Etsy.  I started off limiting myself to four...then five....then six...then finally I justfied these eight because they are all so beautiful.  Not least the two splendiferous men!
