Every collector, whether he collects stamps, Dinky Toys, teabags, coins or even cartoon books is happy to have some rare specimen in his collection. I asked myself if we could present some rare cartoons books on our blog. I asked Jean-Marie if he could help.
He asked me what I meant with a 'rare' cartoon book?
- Is it a book from a little-known artist with a small diffusion?
- Is it a rare book because of a limited edition?
- Is it a rare book because copies have been destroyed?
- Is it a rare book because you can't find it through regular commercial channels?
- Is it a rare book because it's sale was forbidden? (e.g. antisemitic propaganda, pornography)
- Is it a rare book because it's really old?
- Is it a book from a known artist but rarely mentioned in the bibliographies of the author?
-Is it a book with a particularly original presentation?
Let's go and search for it and I hope we can present to you some very interesting books in next posts.
And if you know of some rare cartoon books: let us know.
