Rizla Art Deco

Rizla art deco

 

The Lacroix family has been making cigarette rolling papers for almost 500 years, In 1797 Napoleon granted them license to produce papers under the name RizLa, and as they say, the rest is history. Cigarette rolling papers were a godsend to troops in war, where a quick smoke would settle nerves; or in the old west where cowboys might go weeks on the trail without coming to town. Of course in the 1960’s the marijuana culture discovered the need for Rizla papers. Advertising and poster art is a long tradition with Rizla and this poster is from the 1970’s.
