n 201919 TABAC AVENUE DE GOBELINS
Collectable postcard from Paris, 10,5cm x 15 cm ink and watercolor on archival paper -
These neon Tabac signs are disappearing. LEDs are rapidly replacing all the neon that characterized Paris. The Spiraled tabac signs can be 3 meters tall. They represent a carrote of chewing tabacco because that is how tabacco was originally distributed. People didn’t smoke it, they chewed it. Really chic, huh?
