Fantasio Magazine
Fantasio Magazine was a satirical bi-monthly publication founded by Félix Juven in 1907, which catered to the Bohemian social scene in Paris specialising in social commentary and political satire, and featured sometimes-risqué illustrations by a number of French artists, including Albert Guillaume, Metivet, Etienne Le Rallic, Fabiano, René Giffey and René Gontran Ranson. The cover of every issue was drawn by Auguste Roubille. Fantasio remained in print until the late 1920s.
