Coco de Paris, a mixed media designer, paints charming and humorous creatures on antique french paper. This series in particular was illustrated on “La Petit Illustration,” a weekly French literary journal that published plays, novels, and short stories in the 1920s. So in addition to owning an incredibly unique piece of art, you’ll own a little bit of French history. Cool, huh?
(Coco de Paris prints, $10-$18)

very adorable! what a unique idea. i love the flamingos and octapus!
These are GREAT!! Love them! Thanks for sharing!
(Have written about Dorothy Draper today and the Greenbrier, so I need to “doublethank you” for that post too – of yours – that inspired me a lot!!). Feel like writing a thesis on her now -am so impressed by her work.
Lots of love,
omg i love the octopus with the crown ^_^
great creative stuff!!!
Thanks for this! Just ordered 3 prints. Amazing artwork, great for my babys room!
Thanks for sharing. Love these!
It also ment that I had to by some.
Now I wait impatiently for four pictures 🙂
How fun– I love these! I’d take the peacock on the bicycle.
I’m impressed by your sense for style, aesthetics and designs!
Therefor I’ll ask you to check out my art and living-designs, since your opinion seems to me kind of universal and general.
These are so gorgeous.
Are these really printed directly onto the antique paper, or are they copies of the antique pages? It seems almost a shame to print on something like that, but it’s not like the artist is ruining the pages by any means! I sure do love that octopus <3
just recently I found a seller on etsy that does a similar thing! She prints images on dictionary pages from the 1800’s. They are gorgeous. I love this kind of recycled art
looks amazing, absolutely love them
I love these! Very inspiring 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
I discovered the artist on etsy as well and received 5 prints on spanish dictionary pages from their store for christmas this year! These are gorgeous too though.
Gorgeous. I love art on book pages, mostly because I love books.
Come and check my GIVEAWAY!!!
I pretty much need the bulldog.
i love the randomness of the subject matter. pretty awesome!
I absolutely adore these prints. Almost ALL of them. And I can’t believe how affordable they are! I am on my way over to the Etsy site to purchase quite a few …
Thank you for letting us know!
I have been stalking this amazing artist on etsy now for over 2 months. AMAZING.
I’m going to snatch up all these prints! Especially the bulldog 🙂 thanks for introducing us to this artist!
This is so fun and cool and very un-european!
wow i love all of these, especially the fox! thank you!
Love these! So cute!
so beautiful! love it!
This is great! What a fantastic idea!

<3 <3 <3
A really cool idea.
So simple but it wouldn’t be my idea.
LOVE! Just bought 3 of the giraffe prints. Thank you for sharing!
Wow I absolutely love LOVE love these prints!!!! Great colors, and quirky!
I ordered these the second you posted. She was amazing and customizing and getting them to me ASAP. I highly recommend. I ended up getting the skull w gold crown, the customized deer w antlers (added my husband & my names to it) and the french bulldog with bubble gum. She even included a smaller print of a peacock for free. Amazing!
The flamingo is very unique and stunning. The colors are vibrant and warm. This would be a nice scrapbooking element. Thanks for sharing them.
Love the owl one 😀
I love the one with the fox, it definitely stands out like reading the book and someone staring at you. But the one that has the most elegance would definitely be the bird on the chair. Something on the angle of the bird and the chair just gives you that feel of elegance.
Does anyone know what media she used? Paint?
I have 3 that seems to be originals from 2011
