Rest day #2 / “High-speed countryside” / 2014

One of the things you notice is the landscape. You could almost watch the Tour just to see the mountains, countrysides, rivers, waterfalls, castles, and small French towns.

The stage before this one we had done an interesting bit of hand rolling of the type by setting the roller onto the wood type and NOT rolling it.

We like using bike parts as printing surfaces and decided to create a layout of chains and sprockets and then wrap the word “cycling” around it. We would use the inking technique to create the blur that we often see as the camera stays focused on the riders whizzing by.

We loved the way this one turned out from 2013. We had about a dozen members of our Chesapeake Chapter of the American Printing History Association who joined us for a few hours in the afternoon.
