Nick's all time favourite book from his childhood is "the House that Beebo built" by Phillipe Fix, Janine Ast and Alain Gree..and I had been trying for 2 or so years to find a copy for him to share with Arthur. As I found out this book is very rare and very expensive (so if you have a copy look after it). But one day on my internet searchings, I came across the wonderful illustration work of Alain Gree. He is very well known in France. So this led me to getting a few items featuring his illustrations in the shop. And I have finally added them online. The tattoos were popular at the recent Magnolia Square - they make a nice change to usual ugly ones. Oh and yes I did eventually find Nick a copy and I didn't pay $955 but about $80.
