Our Bicycle Posters are vintage original antiques, not reprints. These cycling posters are archivally mounted on acid free paper with museum wheat paste and backed with linen canvas (Linen Backed). This protects the fragile poster. Early vintage posters were printed on inexpensive paper as their purpose was to be glued up on a wall or kiosk and most probably to have a different one replace it in a short time. This is much like our modern roadside billboards.
