Sold. I'm out looking for more but in the meantime head to the shop for more lovely things at www.handmadeandvintage.co.uk
Asterix the Gaul and friends on this cotton blend fabric from 1974.
This is a cotton blend fabric dating from the 1970's. It's filled with characters from the Goscinny and Uderzo Asterix stories shown on a white background.
Alongside Asterix are Obelix and Getafix among others - including Obelix's faithful friend, Dogmatix.
This is a lovely, rare print that any Asterix fan will love. It is marked with the Dargaud Editeur copyright and dated 1974.
This is a hard to find print. There are selvedges to both sides and the cotton is strong. However there is a marked overall fade to the colours. It's even across the width of the cotton and so not overly bothersome but it is there and the colours are not as vibrant as my camera would have you believe. This is over 40 years old so I think the fading is acceptable but please take it into account when ordering.
Vintage Asterix cotton measures a mighty 175cm across and is 65cm long. If you order both pieces they will come as a continuous length.
There are other Asterix prints in the shop along with Tintin and Lucky Luke.
