St. Raphael Poster

A classic quinquina and if I could read French I might be laughing at that this St. Raphael poster suggests that it is for Hygienic Consumption.  Also I love that the Parisian crowd seems to enjoy absinthe and “amers” or bitter aperitifs of all kinds along side the lovely malaria fighting St. Raphael.

    Effectively, “a glass before each meal is a certification of long life.”

    Talk about your propaganda, the Parisian crowd may “enjoy” Absinthe, but it’s quite obvious from their sullen faces that St. Raphael is presenting Absinthe as a gloom and death maker, whereas St. Raphael stimulates and embodies life.

    What a great poster! I want one!
