This lino block print features my namesake, Minouette (the cat) and the French slogan, 'Méfiez-vous de la contrefaçon!'

It is printed by hand in brown and turquoise on banana fibre paper from Costa Rica. Inspired by a peculiar but endearing vintage French ad, you might translate the slogan as 'Accept no substitutes' if you wanted to be snappy, but it is more like, 'Be suspicious of counterfeits!'

You can spot counterfeits by such subtle clues as inverted letters.

This is a one-of-a-kind artist's proof. The sheet is 8 inches by 10 inches, or 20.3 cm by 25.4 cm.
Méfiez-vous de la contrefaçon! Achetez seulement les gravures montrant my petite chatte Minouette. C'est une gravure de Minouette en encre brun avec les mots en turquoise sur papier blanc avec des fibres de banane (8 pouces par 12 pouces ou 20,3 cm par 25,4 cm). It est unique.
