Prints please

Iconic finnish designer Vuokko Nurmesniemi's rare vintage print from the late 50's for Finnish textile company Marimekko. Finnish children grew up with this in their bedrooms. It reminds me of the Vitra ones by Alex Girrard (see picture below) who took influence from Charles and Ray Eames who Vuokko also used to hang out with in the 60's and 70's, although she designed this pre-Vitra.
