Across cultures and generations, 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. The 12 colorful posters reproduced in this calendar celebrate the bicycle in advertisements from Peugeot, Terrot & Company, and Liberator, as well as the Psycho Cycles by Starley Bro’s.
