Designed for a subscription audience it showcased the most influential posters of the era in a collectible small format. In this image, the artist Jules Cheret is trying to promote a book called L'Amant des Danseuses "The Lover of Ballerinas" written by Felicien Champsaur. . Jules Cheret (1836-1932) was known as the "Father of the Modern Poster." He was a French painter and lithographer who traveled to England as an apprentice, and introduced the latest lithography techniques to French culture. Paired with his creativity and artistic flair, Cheret began creating advertisements for cabarets, music halls, and theaters.
