This thrilling book of detachable vintage cycling posters captures the sport’s style and speed throughout the years.Dating from the late 19th-century to the 1970s, this collection features vintage posters from cycling’s most iconic brands–such as Bianchi and Peugeot–as well as races–such as the now-defunct Peace Race, the Olympics, and Paris-Brest-Paris. Featuring artwork by A. M. Cassandre, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, and other significant names in design history, alongside extraordinary works from lesser known artists and designers, each impeccably reproduced poster is detachable from the spine, ready for framing. The reverse side of each image includes information about the artist and subjects depicted, and a brief introduction offers an overview of the origins, rise and development of the posters. Spanning decades and continents, these striking full-color posters celebrate the beauty of cycling and are the perfect gift for bicycle enthusiasts.
