With the Tour de France in full effect here’s a collection of retro cycling material. Cycling has born some very stylish design over the decades and moving forward it’s interesting to see a retro aesthetic carrying into modern layouts for advertising, editorial and even branding. There are some modern pieces here amongst the vintage material…you’ll need a keen eye to spot them

"Falcon and Bixton were the two French brands of the FrancoAmerican Bicycle Company. I have the original poster and it makes me very happy.
