Canvas poster - Absinthe Ban in France
Designed by Audino, this extraordinary anti-prohibition poster commemorates the vote of the French Chamber of Deputies on 12th February 1915 to ban the sale of absinthe in France. The French Green Fairy is being burnt at the stake in front of a crowd of weeping onlookers, while up above her, her Swiss sister, whose demise had already occurred seven years earlier, waits to welcome her to Fee Verte heaven. In the background The original of this image is one of the rarest of all absinthe posters, with less than a handful of examples recorded.
Our posters are based on ultra high res professional scans, and printed in France using state-of-the-art Giclee technology, on heavy Jetex 300g (10.6oz) canvas, which has outstanding fade-resistant and anti-curling properties (allowing the poster to rapidly resume its natural flat form once you've removed it from the shipping tube.).
Opposite is a close-up picture showing the texture of the Jetex canvas.
