Original Vintage Loterie Nationale Poster "La Petit Poucet" by Gad ca. 1960

More Views

A charming poster commissioned by the Loterie Nationale (French National Lottery) created in 1933 and realized by Gad ca. 1960. Hop-o'-My-Thumb (le Petit Poucet) is the youngest of seven children in a poor woodcutter's family. His greater wisdom compensates for his smallness of size. When the children are abandoned by their parents, he finds a variety of means to save his life and the lives of his brothers. After being threatened and pursued by an ogre, le Petit Poucet steals the magic "seven-league boots" from the sleeping ogre. And as the caption tells us: “And now I am running to purchase a National Lottery ticket!”
