9.  Pierre Belvès.  Rear cover of  Les métiers en images lumineuses [The Trades in Illuminated Pictures].  Paris: Flammarion, 1953.

9a. Detail of the miner.

The child is supposed to cut away the white space in the picture and fill in the cut-outs with pieces of colored paper (the rear cover shows all the outlines colored in as samples). The completed picture can be pasted on a window to create the effect of stained glass. Belvès created seven such albums on different subjects.
