Bloody & Beautiful Vintage Theater Posters from Paris

Grand Guignol means "big puppet show". Here are some posters from the Theatre of Grand Guignol. They are gory, but graphically interesting! "In 1897, the French playwright, Oscar Metenier, bought a theater at the end of the impasse Chaptal, a cul-de-sac in Paris' Pigalle district, in which to produce his controversial naturalist plays." read more history here.
