Absinthe Bottle Typography

Typography on an original French Absinthe bottle

Recently a friend of mine was showing me some of his personal art collection, when i noticed an intriguing bottle on his shelf. The typography was elegant, with a wonderful use of natural sympathetic tones and beautiful considered details. I especially loved the use of the “bomb” iconography in the warnings. Apparently the bottle was picked up on a journey through France around 30 years ago, and from what i was told this was the real French Absinthe or as the label says Absente!
