    These are intact 1958 Book Covers from Mon premier livre, published by Librairie Payot in Lausanne, Switzerland.  The illustration on the front cover is by Marcel Vidoudez (1900-1968), an eclectic and popular French-Swiss illustrator who created drawings for a number of children's books, graphic design, animation, and erotic art.  His style is known for its clarity of line and subtle watercolor tones.  The drawing shows three young children at a table.  A young boy kneels on a bench as he looks at an open book on the table.  Two young girls lean against the table looking at the book.  A toy train and a teddy bear have been abandoned on the floor below them.  The illustration has been colored in bright primary colors with touches of white, black and green against a butterscotch background.  "Mon premier livre" is written in cursive in black.  Each book cover measures 9.875" high by 6.25" wide, connected by a 0.75" orange book cloth spine with the title printed in black.  The back cover is butterscotch.  The interior is off-white which has slightly yellowed.  These 1958 Book Covers from Mon premier livre are in Better Than Good condition with some minor edge wear and back cover scratches and staining.  Ideal for use in art.
