French Pharmaceutical Ads from the 1930s

Juxtapoz // Friday, March 29, 2013
A brilliant collection of pharmaceutical ads from France, circa the 1930s. There are a few in here that channel a pre "Mother's Little Helper" vibe, with a tad-too-happy individual with their over the counter drugs, but we just love the classic graphic design and poster art style.

Her weapons of choice are 'her 2B pencil and a cup of patience.'
