Simple Pleasures

Countryside Bicycling Greeting Card (LEO Design)

As the weather warms and outdoor activities become more appealing, perhaps you’ll endeavor a countryside cycle trek?  If not, there’s always this card, now in-stock at LEO Design.  Adapted from a 1946 English graphic, this card was letterpress printed in a small workshop on Swan’s Island, Maine.  With great economy—and just three colors—it captures beautifully the topography and relaxed attitude of the English downs.  It also captures the simple pleasure of a low-tech pursuit—during a time of enduring austerity in post-war Britain.
