When he wrote Les Affiches Illustrées, a history of the poster based on the 10,000 examples in his possession, he had the happy idea of asking Cheret to use reductions by the Imprimerie Chaix of twenty of his best-known designs as colored illustrations…Ten years later Maindron published his far more significant sequel, Les Affiches Illustrées (1886-1895), which surveys the subsequent history of the poster, this time with seventy-two color plates by the Imprimerie Chaix, the majority after Cheret” (Ray, p. 468).
