i bought an old almanac from burdock blood bitters. the picture on the front is the inspiration for the bullet with butterfly wings artwork. i might make a new thread about this when i have some more time. i mean, it’s nothing new (*), really, but i hadn’t heard about it, and it’s mildly interesting.

*: it’s already mentioned in the spf.org faq, although not 100% correct: http://www.spfc.org/band/faq.html?faq_id=44

Bullet with Butterfly Wings insert – from an advertisement in the 1800s
for some sort of youth potion called, "Brittle’s Blood Bitters".
