Absinthe Junod Three Sheet

Designed for the very largest billboards or outdoor display areas, oversized large format posters were assembled from multiple sheets (the size of each individual sheet was a function of the size of the lithographic stone used to print it). This type of poster had a particularly low survival rate, as they were cumbersome to display and store, and were generally not documented and preserved by contemporary collectors. Shown above is probably the largest absinthe poster in existence, a previously unrecorded 3-sheet version of the famous Absinthe Junod poster by Misti. Each individual sheet measures 1.35m x 2m, giving a total size of 4m x 2m, or just over 13ft by 6ft 7.”
A. Junod were one of the larger absinthe producers.
