Do French people hate Americans? A question I get asked often!

Two things I have been asked frequently in my 17 years in the US are:

  • Are French people romantic?
  • Do French people hate Americans?

I would say that the second question was asked way more often.

A poster by Jean-Pierre Got, a Bordeaux (France) based illustrator, that I got recently with his Christmas Wishes is a good way to answer.


Here is how Jean-Pierre describes it:
"A poster exhibition scheduled in 2008 will pay a special tribute to American wineries and vineyards : "Le troc" ("Barter") was designed in the style of "les images d'Epinal" those very popular wood-engraving prints sold by peddlers throughout France in the early nineteenth century."

As you might remember, The prize I Offered for 'Menu for Hope' was a generous gift from Jean-Pierre Got, a signed pastel by the artist.

As a footnote this global fundraiser started by our friend Pim, brought in close to $59,000.00.
