Letterpress prints - Vélocio's rules for cyclists

Posted on
  • Letterpress prints, c. 25x57 cm, of Vélocio's (that's the French OG cyclotourist, not our esteemed patron) advice to cyclists.

    Hand-set in Monotype Grotesque Condensed, with a linocut image, and printed at the Lock-up Press, Walsall, under the expert eye of Peter Cartright.

    I have a handful of copies left at the moment, though may be able to do another short run. Prints available either on wove (heavyweight watercolour-type, RH in image below) or laid (medium-weight, LH below) paper.

  • I also have one each of the prints in the test colours below; in orange and black instead of red and black, and gold and black on green.

    (Edit: both dibsed)

  • Can I have the gold and black on green please?

  • Will PM. Thanks.

  • Sure - and if anyone has a burning desire for a particular colour scheme that's not available, let me know, and I'll see if I can do one on the reprint run.

  • Could I have a heavyweight rh pic copy please? Will pm

  • could I have the orange and black please? pm'd

  • Any left?

  • Yes - just the red and black ones now, both laid and wove.

  • PM'd about two.

  • PM'd

  • Following because these look great and I'd like to hear about any more runs of them you do. Cheers.

  • I’m interested if any left or a re run happens

  • @TTM @si_mon628 I've still got a couple of copies of the black/red available; they've been popular enough that I'm going to do another short run in the next week or two, but that will be it.

  • These are very nice!

    ....although I take extreme umbrage at points 5 & 7 ;)

  • Hey, I don't make the rules...

    All current copies now dibsed - am going to print another 10 or so next week, so if you've a yen for a particular colour combination, pipe up now and I'll see what I can do...

  • I know I’ve already grabbed one of these, but I’d take another in green and gold if that’s possible?

  • I've not got any of the green and gold left now, but can do one in the reprint run?

    (Edit: I see that's what you were asking - will ask the printer if he's got any gold ink left)

  • One print on the heavy paper un-dibsed and available again. Am booked in to do another run next week, but not sure what paper they'll be on; depends on what the printer has available.

  • received today...looks really, really good!
    Thanks 👌👍

  • Reprint run now done and drying - some of these are dibsed by clubmates, but I've still got about 5 of them left. Printed on wove rag watercolour paper in black and warm red; as before, £20 posted.

  • Got mine today--they look great, get one while you can.
