#PSTR-1096


Laudanum is an alcoholic tincture of opium, sometimes sweetened with sugar and also called wine of opium.

Laudanum was very popular during the Victorian era. It was pretty much prescribed for anything and everything that ailed you.

The term "opium-eaters" meant one who consumed Laudanum.

Laudanum was a favorite drug that was consumed by Lord Byron, Shelly and others.

This poster is 22 inches wide by 17 inches high, generous black ink lushly printed on parchment stock.

PLEASE NOTE: This poster image was hand-drawn by Madame Talbot using General's Cedar Pointe #333-2HB pencils on Crescent 201.6 Hot Press Medium Weight illustration board at original poster size. An antique Koh-i-Noor rapidograph pen and Dr. P. H. Martin's Bombay Black India ink were used for final inking.

After completion, the image was hand-delivered to Ryan Gwinner Press in Portland, Oregon and printed on an offset printing press.

Absolutely no computers were used in the creation of this poster - from start to finish.

The copyright notice is on the website image only and not on the printed poster.
