La Peau de Ma Belle-Mere- French Satirical Comic

"Le Rire" or "Laughter" was the name of a successful satirical French publication that ran from October 1894 to April 1971. Founded during the Belle Epoque by French creative director Felix Juven, "Le Rire" found success in a time where people in French society were enjoying higher educations, better income, and most importantly- leisure time. As interest in arts, culture and politics intensified during the turn of the century, "Le Rire" was the perfect concoction to satisfy such curiosities for the historical price of just 15 cents! Wow. 

What a beautiful cover designed by Abel Faivre for the 6th edition of Le Rire, printed on February 3rd, 1900. What a fantastic rug this couple is perching their feet on...hold on- upon second glance, we think there might be more to this story! 

"Ah perfect...my mother in laws skin is just as soft as that of a tiger". We can't help but seriously laugh at this one! Signed in plate in the lower left hand corner. Printed by Bertin & Cie Paris.
