Analog pixel art 3: Bonsoir!


This piece comes from a lot I found in a ‘brocante’ in the Blaesstraat (Rue Blaes) in the Brussels Marollen district. It is a bag, made as an exercise in needle-work, without doubt to contain more exercices. The Z in the alphabet looks almost italic compared to the other characters. Josée, the girl who made it in the schoolyear 1938-1939 says ‘goodnight’ on the back. If she’s out there: une bonne journée, Josée.
