bicycle parts + typography + letterpress

I love it when my favorite things collide in design. Letterpress, bicycle parts and typography.  I don’t know whether to gasp or soon. I do know I want it!

Available for purchase from Studio on Fire. This poster created for the 2011 Artcrank, a poster show for bike folk. Cranks, chains, cables, wheels, handlebars and even a seat.  The word “Godspeed” was chosen for cyclists, as a wish for a safe and prosperous journey. It was plated in photo polymer and printed as a large format 20 x 26 letterpress print in 2 color on 100% cotton Crane Lettra. More info at Beast Pieces. (photos from Beast Pieces, too).

    I’m definitely with you on this one Kim. I just want to close my eyes and run my fingers lightly over it, somewhat like reading Braille. If I can figure out a place to hang it I think I’ll buy one. Thanks for finding this one.
