We heart Marcel Marlier! Our collection so far!

Marcel Marlier is an amazing Belgian illustrator who illustrated a large number of French childrens books – which were translated into many languages… In France they had ‘Martine Learns to Dance’ etc.. but here… we got ‘Debbie Learns to Dance’ and a whole series about Debbies exploits!!

We also have “Johnny and Sophie in the Forest” too! But I can’t find it!

  1. Just today, I received my ebay purchase in the post… Debbie Learns to dance, Mark and Michelle in the forest, Debbie learns to cook, and Tinker goes skating…Paid for 3, got an extra for free! What a lovely lady! I LOVE Marlier’s work!

    I am curious… did you buy all the books? (I hope you did!).
    Which titles did you find?

    Laure,

    I hope you can read my questions!! Best regards,
    Priscilla

  4. Hi I am laure from Belgium and I love Tiny (that’s how we call her) I still have a closet full of tiny books from me my mother and my grandmother. She showed me how to be creative, to read,play,be creative,…. and I still often read her books just because they are so pretty. And because it’s my eighteenth birthday I am throwing a Tiny party with the lampions and the cake ,the tiny dresscode and so on. I will do some research here to see if he’s still alive.If i find him I’ll innvite him to the party. I’ll let you know If I found him.

    JUST LAST NIGHT, I CAME ACROSS A HIDDEN BASTIAN OF HIS MARLIER’S ILLUSTRATED FRENCH AND ITALIAN BOOKS, AT A DISCOUNT SHOP>>> FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME… I WAS BLOWN AWAY.

    I AM AN ACTIVE METROPOLITAN ARTIST, MURALIST AND ART TEACHER TO WARD OF THE COURT AND FOSTER CHILDREN. GOING ON 15 YEARS. BEFORE THIS, I ACTUALLY WAS A WORLD LEADER OF THE GRAFFITI ART MOVEMENT IN 1980’S-1994… AND TRAVELED ABROAD TO PAINT IN SWITZERLAND, MEXICO CITY… INVITED TO JAPAN, RUSSIA, ETC. I HAVE MET COUNTLESS OF INCREDIBLY DYNAMIC AND UNMATCHABLE ARTISTS, ILLUSTRATORS, PAINTERS. ETC….

    BUT,THERE IS JUST SOMETHING ABOUT HIS WORK THAT IS DIFFERENT. I BELIEVE IT HAS TO BE A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD. HE APPROACHES SUCH A DELICATE AND FRAGILE SUBJECT AS A LITTLE TENDER GIRL AND HER WORLD… WITH SO MUCH RESPONSIBILITY, CLEANLINESS, RESPONSIBILITY AND CARE… TRULY A MAN OF SCRUPLES AND INTEGRITY. TODAY, ESPECIALLY IN THE HOLLYWOOD SATURATED AND X-RATED MEDIA INFLUENCE, MARCEL MARLIER’S WORK WOULD BE EITHER LAUGHED TO SCORN OR CENSORED COMPLETELY. HIS WORK NOT ONLY REPRESENTS TRUE AND HONEST CRAFTMANSHIP, MASTERY OF FORM< ARCHITECTURE AND COLOR... HE REPRESENTS A TIME, PLACE AND WORLD, WHERE LIFE WAS JUST SO MUCH SIMPLER AND SAFER. THE 1960’S AND 70’S IS WHAT HIS ARTWORK AND ADOLESCENTS SEEM TO ENCOMPASS… BUT LAST NIGHT, WHEN I FIRST BEHELD THIS WORLD OF MARCIER…. IT TRUTHFULLY AND UNEQUIVOCALLY IS TIMELESS* HECTOR RIOS – ARTERNATIVES

  6. After surfing the net many times I still can’t get any information about Marcel Marlier. I think that he is an artistic genius and would love to know more about him. He has had a huge influence on my artistic style . Somebody out there must know where he lives now, is he still painting, has he a family etc.
