Collector’s Corner:

According to Wikipedia:
High-quality designer and illustrator, Jean Matet remains little known because most of his work intended for children was published in the form of fragile booklets, often to be colored or cut out, which were easily destroyed upon use. He worked for the publisher A. Capendu as well as others.
