Edition of 150 and signed and numbered. A poem by Margaret Atwood is included in the publication, which was designed by Claire Huss. (images courtesy of the artist)



This year’s most lovely, vintage make-up bag in the world! They look like fifties designs, they are leather with a kiss lock, embossed with a golden print of lips, lipstick an eye, a pencil and, our favorite, the word Cosmétiques. (it’s equally nice as Discotheque)  The lining is made of plastic. Most of the purses are unsigned, except for West-Germany in some of them. There are some variations to be found in the print design, so we suspect they were common and not to expensive, maybe even sold worldwide, who knows?
