Two old French books from the 1920s and 1930s. One is a fiction by Genevieve Fauconnier printed in 1933, no illustrations, 231 sides. This books has seen brighter days, the cover and font page have been half eaten away as has the top left corner of the book.

Lots & lots of pages for a wabi sabi decor project, re-wallpapering the toilet, giving an old bedhead a refresher . . .
