Books Info:

J. Smith free pdf This is an utterly charming and lavish edition of the previously unpublished "J. Smith" by Fougasse from the Royal Collection. Published to coincide with the celebration of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, "J. Smith" by Fougasse is an astonishing and unique glimpse into royal life in the 1920s through the dolls' house of Queen Mary. Completed in 1924, the dolls' house was designed by renowned architect Sir Edwin Lutyens, with everything inside produced by the finest craftsmen and companies of the day that carried Royal warrants. One of the most remarkable aspects of the dolls' house is the library, which contains over 200 books, all with original stories by contemporary authors, including Arthur Conan Doyle, A. A. Milne, Rudyard Kipling, Thomas Hardy and Hilaire Belloc, often written in their own hand. The most incredible book of the collection is this story of Joe Smith, a fairy blown to London from Fairyland. Originally measuring just 38.5 X 30mm, this luxurious gift edition is beautifully bound, gilt-edged with a ribbon bookmark. This is a previously unpublished miniature book from the dolls' house of Queen Mary. It is published in conjunction with the Royal Collection. It is a unique gift for dolls' house collectors and Royal enthusiasts alike.

About Fougasse

Kenneth Cyril Bird illustrated as "Fougasse" and is best known for his Careless Talk Costs Lives posters which he drew during WW2 for the Ministry of Information and for which he was awarded the honour of CBE. He was editor of Punch magazine from 1949 until 1953. His drawings and cartoons succeeded in communicating often serious issues in a humorous and light-hearted way. Fougasse died in 1965 aged 77. The Royal Collection is held in trust by the Queen for the nation and includes paintings, drawings, furniture, ceramics, clocks, silver, sculpture, jewellery, books, maps, armour and textiles from 1660 onwards. Around 3000 items are on loan to museums and galleries around the country and many more are exhibited in the official residences of the Queen, in touring displays and in other institutions around the globe.
