Skeleton Pharmacy/ Drug Store - "No Substitution" Posters
Skeleton Pharmacy/ Drug Store - "No Substitution" Posters
The Antikamnia Chemical Company made drugs at the turn of the 19th century. The company started in 1890 in St. Louis, Missouri. Its most popular drug was a pain killer that was a combination of heroin and codeine. The product was very successful until it was ruled addictive and taken off the market around 1905.

The Antikamnia Chemical Company published a yearly Calendar with illustrations made by Louis Crucius (also spelled "Crusius"), a pharmacy student and later medical doctor who spent his early years working in a local pharmacy. During his days working at the pharmacy, Crucius would bring in humourous skeletal illustrations which were then placed in the store window. In 1893, a collection of his illustrations, fondly called "Funny Bones," were published. Later these illustrations were purchased by the Antikamnia Chemical Company and used for five years of advertising calendars between 1897 - 1901. Each yearly calendar had six illustrations, except for the 1901 issue, which had four. These calendars were then distributed to the medical community. They were very popular and were often referred to as the "Dance of Death" Calendars.

Today these vintage images are highly sought after and very difficult to find. We have restored following image from the Antikamnia Calendar 1900 and have updated it to reflect January/February of 2011. This comic image of a skeleton pharmacy (drug store) is called "No Substitution."
