The album of the 52 postillions (Anon., ca. 1840)

The drawer has depicted 52 postillons in this travel book. If you leaf through the travel book quickly, it behaves like a movement picture. Some postillons are slumped on their saddles, others stand up afterwards, straighten up on their stirrups, or sway in their saddles; the whips sometimes stand still, and later draw dissolute movements. One must think of a flip-book. (Collection François and Mireille Pétry)
