Je ne fume que Le Nil

Ships From: New York, NY US

Description: Although the slogan reads “I only smoke Nil,” Nil isn’t actually a cigarette, but rather a brand of cigarette rolling paper. Nil claimed to be as “tough as an elephant’s hide,” which is how the company’s spokespachyderm came to be. So this was an easy marriage between product and posterist, seeing as the elephant was a favorite Cappiello attention-getter. The Joseph Bardou company introduced Nil to the public in 1887.

Fourrures Canton / 20 Rue de Bourg.

Ships From: New York, NY US

Description: One of three designs that Loupot created for Canton Furriers in Lausanne, this image of a fur-swaddled, ivory-skinned woman with a bee-stung pout first appeared in 1924. In the early 1930s, the background color changed to blue and would remain so throughout a variety of address changes for the company. This is the third edition in the series with the Rue de Bourg address, printed from the same lithographic stones as the original. Asked why black background was replaced by blue over time, the current chief of operations, Richard Canton, revealed that the change came about because blue provided better visibility during the winter months.
