David Dellepiane, born in Genoa in 1866, arrived in France at the age of 9 and entered the École des Beaux-Arts in Marseille in 1880.
He lived in Paris in 1890, at a time when modern style was becoming popular with Mucha's posters.
He worked in the capital under the direction of Jules Chéret who trained him in lithographic art.
It is Jean Bardou who creates around 1845 the brand of cigarette paper "J.B", which quickly became "JOB".
His son, Joseph Bardou, also created a cigarette paper workshop in 1849, with the brands Papier Bardou and Riz Bardou, and the signature "JH Bardou".
In the 1870s, part of the production was sent to Egypt, which is why one of the paper brands was given the name of the Nile, registered on May 13, 1887.
This product was launched by advertisements with images of sphinxes, pyramids, palm trees and the famous elephant which was redesigned by the poster artist Leonetto Cappiello in 1912.
This poster shows Napoleon on horseback, with a battalion of soldiers.
