"Bonal" is an original lithograph poster by Adolphe Mouron Cassandre. It features an abstracted figure drinking Bonal Gentiane Quina, a cocktail or aperitif, which, consumed before a meal, stimulates the appetite. This figure is in front of a yellow background, and the liquid transitions into pink stars inside the body. A key overlaps the figure's stomach, suggesting the "unlocking" of the appetite.

Poster and theatre designer, lithographer, painter and creator of typefaces, Cassandre, is one of the greatest commercial artists of this century. He reconciled the ideas of such contemporary avant-garde movements as Cubism, Surrealism and Neue Sachlichkeit, with the demands of commercial art.
