100 years of posters for “The Volta” a (I think) Catalan bicycle race*. Really cool, and surprising – the number on the poster is the edition, not the year. So when it says 67, it means Sixty-Seventh, not 1967. Until I figured that out, I was thinking, “Man, those Catalans were ahead of their time, graphically!”

It looks like missed years were World War One and after, and the Spanish Civil War. Don’t read that entry and then read the news.

*Obviously I know nothing about bicycle racing.
