‘Sleeping Beauty’s earliest influence apparently comes from “Perceforest,” a French romance first printed in 1528. While not a Sleeping Beauty tale, Perceforest (1528) contains many elements similar to the later Sleeping Beauty tales. Some scholars debate the connection between the stories, but I believe there are enough similarities to warrant comparisons. You can read more about Perceforest on Wikipedia.

The next known version of the tale came from Giambattista Basile’s “Sun, Moon, and Talia” also known more formally as…’ SurLaLune

I thought it was time to revisit Sleeping Beauty, created with a vintage postcard from  The Graphics Fairy, and blended with one of my vintage postcard backs and a scan of a piece of coffee bean paper. I have used the design on several new products, as below.

My favourite mouse silhouette! The dinky little thing has done good and sold herself several times over as address labels.

And for my next post, I shall tell you that a global hotel conglomerate has ordered a million cushions, and a well-known stationery chain has requested countless boxes of notebooks. In which case, the world is my oyster!

A simple design but mine own! It started life in the ’90s as a handmade card at a time when such a thing was still possible for me. I’m very fond of its simplicity.
