Recto: An illustration of a cutaway view of a human stomach is centered on a cream-colored card. Thin straight lines, extending horizontally or vertically from various parts of the stomach, end in eight food labels, imprinted in miniature black sans serif type: for example, creme caramel, escargots, and coffee.
Verso: Just below the top left edge, Restaurant Florent, capitalized, is followed underneath by the restaurant's address, hours and telephone number, imprinted on three lines. A thin vertical line, ending at the bottom in Design: M&Co, separates the message and addressee areas. On the upper right, a rectangular outline encloses the word Stamp.
