Hand Printed Bicycle Chain Wallpaper

Hello,

My dad prints wallpaper (and rides a 1961 Freddie Grubb Comet, 2 years younger than mine). You might be interested in his latest design; bicycle chain.

Heres my own Grubb leaning against the wall he papered with this design in my room:

He sells this block printed paper at 140 per 10 metre roll.

Thanks,
George

(forgot to say, hes called Matthew Meadows)
His website is matthewmeadows.net

This is really awesome. Seriously so cool.

If I had money I would totally buy some too. Tell your dad to keep up the good work. And nice bike! :)

Yep, you should definitely ask around. Many people would like it, but perhaps not to do the whole room, so smaller runs will be more welcome.

Love it! Is it a small batch thing or will it be available in, say, five years time when I have a wall?

Respect to your Dad, very cool.

I like this too, although I suffer from the same problem as Superprecise.
Any other colours? The designer in me thinks black/grey/something(navy? British Racing Green?) would look lovely

OK, once there's 10 of us we can start deciding who is going to order and front the money (or use their PayPal to collect). Hopefully it will be easier than Cameron-Clegg talks.
