About

Piccoli Editions - Collection of mid century children’s books

“Some collectors desire beetles, while others have divergent and decided propensities for empty bottles, full bottles… silhouettes, tea caddies… horseshoes, guns, stuffed owls, stuffed animals, stuffed shirts, candlesticks, trademarks, first editions… Although it is quite evident that collectors are not entirely “all there,” I have always found them to be nice, harmless people, whom any of my readers could invite home without danger of being disinherited.”

Herbert Faulkner West, ‘Modern Book Collecting for the Impecunious Amateur’

Hello my name is Lauren Hitchon, I am a web and print designer, living in Australia and this shop is a curated collection of mid century children’s books published by Editrice Piccoli Milan that I began collecting in 2004.

Casa Editrice Piccoli Milano
The publishing house ‘Piccoli’ was founded in Milan in 1945 by Osvaldo Dolci. Piccoli published books and a huge range of publications for children, including school primers that were used to teach children to read from the 1930s through to the early 1960s. These tales, in addition to beautiful images, taught moral lessons for young children. Piccoli leaned much of it’s success on authors such as Jolanda Colombini Monti and illustrators such as Mariapia (Mariapia Tomba).
