In our most recent e-mailout, we featured this somewhat eclectic mix if items seen below.
Amongst them was this fabulous record set… Escuchar y cantar or “Listen & sing”.
It’s a sing-a-long teaching aid for learning traditional Spanish songs, helping with pronunciation etc.
It comprises a set of records and an accompanying booklet written by Raymond N Jacovetti.
It was printed in New York by Holt, Rinehart & Winston and published in 1965.
The most striking feature is the gorgeous illustrations that the booklet is packed with.
They’re by someone called Mac Shepard.
We’ve never come across his work before, but we were immediate converts.
He’s got his own distinctive style, but if we were going to compare him to anyone it would be Bill Charmatz who we’re big fans of… click here to check out the Flickr group we started.
We’re now on the hunt for more examples of Mr Shepard’s artwork!
