Mon Merle

Detail of a hand-drawn illustration for a French-Canadian folk song.


From "Les 100 plus belles Chansons" published by La Bonne Chanson Enr., 1956, Laprairie, Quebec, Canada.


I have scanned and cropped several of the headings from this songbook. The fonts are delightful and the illustrations show much ingenuity.


I found this pocket-sized, spiral-bound booklet (minus the cover) at the Conroe, TX Salvation Army.
