This stunning original poster advertises a commune in southern France that's known for its healing properties and relaxing aura. Inspired by Ancient bathes, the classical influences are clear -- this poster depicts the Lamalou bathes as a stone pediment, showing two-woman luxuriously steaming, elegant ferns and Doric columns all around them.
