When a snake can't be charmed by an expert, bring in the booze as the last resort! This c1920s poster by Mich highlights the enticing elements of Le Fakyr Aperitif. It was created during a time in which French culture was heavily influenced by its colonies, especially Algeria. 'Le Fakyr' (fakir) is a reference to a Sufi Muslim who lives on alms. The unique dotted background of this poster mimics the skin of a snake.
Michel Liebeaux (1881-1923), better known as Mich, was a poster artist who was active in the early twentieth century. Although his career was short, he produced a number of well-known French posters in the area of bicycles and automobiles. He was also an illustrator for the premier French auto-racing paper, L'Auto.
