More French lovers by Raymond Peynet

To continue from my last post

Here is an obituary of the cartoonist.

“PEYNET’S LOVERS – “Les Amoureux de Peynet” – were known throughout France and beyond in the 1950s and 1960s. Created by the artist and designer Raymond Peynet, the two charming, whimsical characters – the little poet, immaculately dressed, adorned with a bowler hat and accompanied by his lady friend – had a simple way of amusing, and communicating with, everyone. They conveyed love and peace as well as a sweet kind-hearted and romantic message; above all they were very French.
