  • This kind of detailed illustration with text is known as an image d'Épinal in French, which came to describe a series of images on a popular topic in print and bright colors (like a comic strip). The first images of the Epinal series were started around 1796 by the Imaging of Épinal printing company founded by Jean-Charles Pellerin, who lived and worked in Épinal, France. He was also well known for printing playing cards and paper dolls. The company was passed down from father to son through the next century and still exists today. This example from 1915 describes the processes of preparing tobacco. At the top it warns children not to smoke.
