Let me introduce you to illustrator and graphic artist Nathalie Lété. I was looking at her beautiful work on the internet and thinking that it's not really my cup of tea but I like it and wouldn't it be wonderful to have a little bit of it. Nathalie's work seemed so familiar and then I realised that I might have something of hers - a little tin bucket that I'd bought as a gift for a friend a few years back. I began to doubt that my friend would like it so I bought her something else and kept the bucket. I hadn't known who the designer/illustrator was but now I see written on the bottom of the bucket "Nathalie Lété pour Vilac." How weird is that?
Nathalie has illustrated a children's pop-up book Promenade de la petite fille (Ramble of the little girl) and you can see her reading it here. And you can visit her website to see more of her work - i.e. if it's your cup of tea.
