Henri’s Walk to Paris: Little Henri does what we all daydream of doing many afternoons: He up and leaves his little village of Reboul in France and heads for Paris. The artwork in this sweet book is just amazing, and will delight little ones and their parents alike.
patterns are unusual and detailed and illuminate the texture of the leaf. The use of tone in this image also helps to identify the pattern as the shadows are darkened and the colours contrast each other.
An official photo describing the kit of a British infantryman in 1939. Note that the gas mask ('respirator') and anti-chemical warfare cape are parts of the outfit, remnants of WW1 memories. In actual combat, and marching with full kit, the British infantryman would carry a pack known as a "valise" that contained more clothing and personal items. Officers wore the exact same uniform save for markings of their rank.
