Bicycles have long promised adventure and freedom, progress and hope. Their popularity blossomed in the late 1800s, coinciding with the rise of lithography and lavishly illustrated posters. With stylish typography and eye-catching compositions, artists of the day emphasized the pleasures and practicalities of cycling. Their dynamic posters celebrate the bicycle in advertisements from the likes of Cycles Peugeot, Premier Cycle Company, and Cycles Gladiator. The 12 vintage posters presented in this calendar will capture your imagination and propel you through your year.
