After Jean Lanfray, a Swiss farmer and known absinthe drinker, shot his entire family, petitions to ban absinthe were circulated and the public began to adopt the position that absinthe was a menace to society; a position based on media manipulation and misinformation, and to which the wine industry also contributed, due to fear of losing sales in their products because of absinthe popularity.

So hereby I present 3 absinthe prints from the ban era in France:

- A broadsheet attacking "l'odieuse absinthe" (the hateful absinthe) and announcing the famous anti-absinthe rally at the Trocadero in Paris on 14th June 1907.

- The following morning newspaper Le Matin, 15th June 1907, describing the previous day's rally – you can actually read the headline in the front cover: “Tous pour le vin contra l’absinthe” (All with the wine against absinthe).

- A proclamation poster; the production and sale of Absinthe was increasingly taxed and regulated from the early 1900's because of its high alcoholic strength, and the campaigns of the prohibitionist movement.

These are high quality prints, so clear that you can actually read them (better with a magnifying glass), and printed on real parchment paper - this is not coffee or tea stained paper. The two posters are 1 3/8 inches (3.5 cm) tall and 1 inch (2.5 cm) wide. The newspaper is 1 9/16 inches (4 cm) tall and 1 1/8 inches (3 cm) wide; it opens, and it is printed in all 4 sides.

This miniature fits the 1:12 scale, so it's perfect for any dollhouse, diorama, doll scene, shadow box or just by its own. They would make a wonderful addition to any library or study, or among your absinthe collection as a curiosity.

PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS NOT A TOY.
This is an adult collectible and it is not meant for children due to choking hazards. For decoration only.

AN IMPORTANT NOTE TO MY US CUSTOMERS:

Due to recent problems with suspicious foreign mail, the USPS Customs department is holding all packages and letters to any US address for up to 2 months. Please understand that although I ship your package as soon as payment clears, I can not know how long it will take to reach you; and once it is sent, I have no control over it, nor any way to track it down to know exactly where it is.

If you are in a hurry, please plan in advance. As stated, your package could take any time between 3 weeks and 2 months to get to you.

Sorry for the troubles, and thank you for your understanding.
