Wednesday’s ad is for Blonde de Mars, from maybe the 1910s or 20s. From the late 1800s until the 1980s, poster art really came into its own, and in Europe a lot of really cool posters, many of them for breweries, were produced. I’ve been posting vintage European posters all last year and will continue to do so in 2020. This poster was created for Brasserie de Mons-en-Barœul, which was located in Mons-en-Barœul, which is “is a French commune, located in the department of Nord in the region of Hauts-de-France. It is part of the European Metropolis of Lille. The most well-known brewery there is undoubtedly Pelican, which was later known as Pelforth, but I can’t tell if this that brewery or a different one. I think today it’s owned by Heineken, but I’m not even absolutely sure of that, either. I also don’t know who the artist is who created this poster.
