Motorcycle art




Been thumbing through a friend's collection of old posters and race programmes, found when a local mechanic was shutting up shop and chucking stuff in the Italian version of a skip. The graphics are striking, reflecting Italian design and typography which has always evolved, excited and gone its own way, from more austere and stylised 40s and 50s drawings in black only, to these in yer face 1960s splashes of full happy colour...
