A Story of Bears PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

A Story of Bears free pdf Sylvie Huet rediscovered her own childhood teddy at the age of 49 in a Paris fleamarket. Until then he had lived only as a memory and in family photographs. Her discovery began a trail of exploration, revealing childhood memories and family secrets. The bears that feature are aged between 44 and 103 years old - worn, stitched, and scarred, yet seemingly indestructible. Mostly they are anonymous, but several have celebrity status. Amongst those included are Nana, Jean Paul Gaultier's bear with the cone bra- Grayson Perry's 'personal god' Alan Measles- Tomi Ungerer's bear, who inspired his famous children's book Otto- and Jubilee, a stuffed chimpanzee and the childhood companion of Dame Jane Goodall, now considered the world's foremost expert on chimpanzees. Sylvie Huet's portraits give the bears a dignity that befits their status in the eyes of their owners. Included are archive photographs, stories from the past, accounts of meetings and literary extracts.
