I am happy to present this very beautiful bicycle advertisement from the 1930s!
The poster is an advertisement for a bicycle company called "Rafaga" which was produced in Aragon (Northeastern Spain) and advertises their bicycle as "the champion of Aragon". The motif shows a winged bicycle flying over what I believe is Barcelona which is stressed by the slogan "(it) does not run.... (it) flyes).
Out of Copenhagen loves bikes and uses the bike at a daily basis so I am always on the look for stylish vintage posters like this one. This gem was created in the period known "art deco" which is one of my favorites art periods. Art Deco poster will often have simple lines, focus on light, shades and clouds and be very sharp in its contrast.
All in all a very unique bicycle advertisement that will do its magic on any wall. I believe that vintage poster lovers who are into art deco and/or bicycles would be quite exited about this great poster.
Thanks a lot for watching and please let me know if you have any questions.
