Cote A Ouvrir- 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. Interested 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. 

If anything is for certain, it is that French caricature artist Abel Faivre sure knows how to get a laugh out of us! With a butcher knife in one hand and an operating table at this suited mans feet- we just know things are about to get interesting.

"Why did you write on me, you know I can read right?" says the anxious lying man as "Cote A Ouvrir" or "Cut Open" is written across his unsuspecting ribs. We just know this October 1, 1901 cover for the 7th edition of Le Rire was a hoot and a half! Signed in plate in the upper left hand corner.
