You’re going to want to look a little closer at this picture.
It shows a letterpress poster conceived, created, and printed at Studio on Fire
in Minneapolis and it was made by inking actual bike parts and pressing them onto the paper.
“We printed all kinds of parts: cranks, chains, cables, wheels, handlebars and even a seat,” writes Studio on Fire. “After inking each part individually we had a whole table full of prints to chose and build from. It was amazing how much type and texture come out of each part. These prints were then digitally arranged on top of a pencil sketched layout. The word ‘Godspeed’ seems especially appropriate for cyclists, as a wish for someone’s safe and prosperous journey.”
The 20×26 poster costs $30 and can be purchased here.
