i received some very happy surprise mail yesterday: the gorgeous alex fulton gifted me this spectacularly groovy board book & 45 record! ‘friday street fantasy’ was published by paul hamlyn,sydney, 1969. aside from the party-in-an-ornamental-photo-lettering-catalog cover up there, its full of fab illustrations. and mysterious music…
…unfortunately a small person i know jammed up our record player and so i haven’t heard the record yet. but for now, the illustrations:
this is the town of Friday Street (yes. a town called street. ask bruce woodley). it was full of sad children until one day…
and now everyone in town sings and plays and has fun! aaahh pink and orange town!! i want to live there!
the next song ‘little one’ is a lullaby (i assume from the lyrics …ahem, naughty record player breaking child). i like the dancing doll marionette!
this is little miss sorrow. her balloons are just beautiful, so i hope she’s not sad for long.
in the back cover we meet bruce, singer and songwriter and member of the seekers (a famous australia folk group from the 60s). apparently he was 26 when he made this album!
thank you again alex, i will treasure this book!
