Gli Imperatori All'Osteria

This postcard is a blue and white illustration of two emperors slumped over at a table. Small skeletons are pulling money out of their pockets. In the top left, a skeletal woman stands in a doorway, under a sign which reads "Vendita Sangue", and smokes a pipe, which has "Pagheranno!" in the smoke cloud. In the top right are drawings people hanging and someone stepping on what may be dead bodies. Text beneath picture: "Alberto Martini". Text at bottom center: "Gli Imperatori All'Osteria". On reverse: "Danza Macabra Europea Serie Di 12 Cartoline Di Alberto Martini".
