Skrimisher Publishing has posted The Bayonet No. 44: The Blueberries, for your downloading and reading pleasure.



In this issue:

This download includes a complete PDF copy of La Baoinnette No. 44: Les Bleuetes, a French magazine published during World War I, and high-resolution TIFF format images of all 26 illustrations that appear in the publication (seven full-color images at 300 dpi and 19 black-and-white images at 600 dpi). These high quality images can be freely used in publishing projects of all sorts and are especially suited for those tying in with the Great War, the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and the classic era of the Cthulhu Mythos. Subjects depicted include soldiers, battlefields, weapons, fashion, and daily life, and run the gamut from humorous to dramatic in tone and from cartoonish to realistic in style.

La Baionnette is a French satirical weekly that was published by cartoonist Henry Maigrot from 1915 to 1920. It was intended to boost French morale and took its name from its editor's practice of using it like a bayonet charge to ridicule Germany, caricaturize leaders like Kaiser Wilhelm II and Crown Prince Wilhelm of Prussia, and make incisive social commentary. Its pages were graced by work from some of France's greatest artists, including ones who were famous before the war or went on to achieve it during the interwar period.
