“It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.”
― Pablo Picasso
I’ve posted these spectacular, quirkily arranged compilation pages before, singly, but thought they worked rather well as a set - as they were origially offered for sale when published in France in 1903.
This week, dear readers, marks something of a stunning milestone for antique-erotic, as we sail on past the utterly astonishing total of ten thousand followers! I am overjoyed that my little idea has grown into something so very many people are enjoying (as well as a tad overwhelmed), and, as ever, exceedingly grateful for your appreciation over the last couple of years - this collection’s second anniversary was attained in July. I extend my warmest gratitude to you all, every last one, and hope you never cease to find much to enjoy here, as the collection continues to grow.
