The Imagerie D'Épinal were inexpensive color illustrated picture sheets, essentially a distinct form of comic strip, originating in the French town of Épinal. These sheets were hawked throughout the 19th century, primarily in rural areas of France, the Netherlands and Germany, for the general public and children in particular.
