I love old cycling posters. They capture something that seems missing in today’s multimedia always online world. Perhaps its because they portray a past that didn’t really exist, a golden age of cycle racing where Olympian ideals of fair play held sway. Perhaps it’s because I have a greater appreciation for art that’s produced manually with pen and brush, ink and paint, than I have for digital images manipulated by software. Mainly it’s just because I like the imagery. Here are a few of my favourites.
