Thank you so much for these. They are quirky and spooky combined. penny
great images! thanks for sharing them, antikamnia is 'opposed to pain' (The Antikamnia Chemical Compmany produced the calendar)
These are great Val! FYI : this was a turn of the century pain remedy,often mixed with cocaine and quinine,often lethal to it's takers!! It means " opposed to pain"....I've always lived old advertising....Great images for Halloween! Thanks!
Here's a bit about Antikamnia, and some more great images!http://bibliodyssey.blogspot.com/2007/05/antikamnia-chemical-company.htmlCheers!
These are just fabulous, thank you!
They are quite spooky and rather bizarre, but absolutely fantastic! I was so intrigued by the strange name, I googled it, and there is a surprising amount of info on this company.
I like these!Thank you so much!Friendly.
So grateful for these. Many thanks for such good looking elements!
Louis Crucius' art work is delightful, it's just a shame it had to be associated with the Antikamnia Drug Company. The name means "opposed to pain". From what I have read the company's drug was made with codeine and quinine and made many unsuspecting patients addicts, including small children. But I still love his Crucius' drawings, they are great for Day of the Dead themed stuff. Thanks for letting me learn something today.
Love these. Thank you!
Delightful. Too bad companies now a days aren't so honest and humorous about their products. Bayer immediately comes to mind !
