This is a complete and original copy of the French magazine "Nos Loisirs" ("Our Leisure Time"), printed in September 1907.
"Nos Loisirs" was the fortnightly supplement published by French newspaper “Le Petit Parisien” from 1906 until 1940. Content included news, funny stories, curiosities and games. It was issued on Thursdays, dated for the following Sunday.
This is issue 35 from its second year, published on 1st September 1907. The cover was illustrated by the French artist René Prejelan (1877-1968). It comprises 16 pages of text, black and white illustrations and advertising.
René Prejelan was a prolific painter, illustrator and cartoonist. His work was seen regularly in newspapers, comics, books and advertising and provides a pictorial history of the fashions of the day.
It's held in a mylar bag mounted in a black, engineered wood frame with perspex aperture.
When framing printed memorabilia, we use originals. We don't cut or deface and use a variety of archival methods to preserve and display. The frame is sealed but our method of pinning makes disassembling easier, if you wanted to view the piece (it would require remounting and resealing afterwards).
Like all wall-mounted artwork, avoid hanging in sustained, direct sunlight. Indirect sunlight is fine, but the UV rays in direct sunlight can cause fading over time.
