Whimsical French cartoonist and illustrator Raymond Peynet was famous for his drawings of a young romantic couple. He created the character of the young poet and his fiancée in 1942 which became an instant hit all over the world. Several books of his drawings were published one of which I have called "The Lover's Keepsake". It was published in 1958 and has a forward my one of my favourite cartoonists and illustrators of all time: Ronald Searle! I have three of the illustrations from the "Lover's Keepsake" below for for your viewing pleasure!
