Several years ago I was visiting some friends of mine who have a home in the south of France outside of St. Remy close to the sanitarium where Van Gogh used to hang out . Kinda made me feel a little loony just thinking about it! My friends knew where all the best flea markets and antique shops were and one of my finds was a two book 1923 edition of the Nouveau Dictionnaire De La Vie Pratique. The illustrations are fabulous and I wanted to share some of them with you. From these illustrations you will learn how to fence, play croquet and boules, throw a discus, and rescue a drowning man. Or you may just want to use them for your art. Since I don't know what the copy right issues are I advise you to use them only for your own artistic or educational purposes.
