Title: The Laugh, The Preparation at the Bar

"Le grand chic moderne: l'élevage au chalumeau." (The great modern chic: torch breeding.)

Original vintage cover from Le Rire, a satirical French magazine. Le Rire was founded in the Belle Epoque by Felix Juven and ran from 1894-1971. It was the most successful humorous periodical of its time. This cover illustration on this edition has a go at some cruder humor: an uppity toddler drinks breast milk a straw's distance away.
