G. Boudet, Editeur. Justification du triage. No. 281 a 1050 sur papier velin. Printed on fine vellum paper stock in 1897. Heine created the Simplicissimus poster in 1897 as one of the co-founders of the satirical magazine "Simplicissimus". For maximum effect he deliberately used the traditional German colors -schwarz/weiss/rot (black/white/red). His powerful image marked a radical departure from the then prevalent Art Nouveau style (Cheret, Mucha, etc.). Not only would the poster bring him international acclaim but it would also spawn an entire new genre in graphic design.
