Nadar II: Journal pour rire 1848-51

After Nadar had to cease his own magazine Revue Comique due to new censorship laws under the presidency of Louis Napoléon, he continued to work for Charles Philipon. In his quarterly pictorial review series for Philipon’s newly founded Journal pour rire, he also commented on the increasing severeness of police measures, which only shortly afterwards ended in a bloody coup d’état.
