Bicycle advertising posters are artistic fuel for the imagination. Best of all they are promoting bicycles! Hopefully you have noticed that on the right side bar of this blog there is often a cycling advertising poster. These will change almost daily as long as fresh ones can be located. Keep an eye out for them and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

The invention of multicolor printing was developed along the same time and transformed the advertising industry. Artists were moving to Paris and other major cities to try it out. Suddenly posters were being seen as an art form.
