A new appearance in the Rouleur online shop this week attracted my attention and also reminded me of something similar – and equally beautiful – that has been around around for a little while..
Two different takes of a poster of various cycling jerseys. The limited edition Rouleur version (£45.00, A2 sized), by illustrator Beach, chronologically details the jersey’s of the 101 Tour de France winners in an attractive flat graphic style whilst David Sparshott’s (£55, A2 size) pencil crayon sketches capture a wide range of vintage jerseys in his signature style. Both prints are very simple and just let the beauty of the jerseys – and the magic of a bit of repetition – do the hardwork.

Cycling Jerseys by David Sparshott
David has a deal on at the moment for two A2 prints for £100. If you are tempted by the jersey one I would suggest that the vintage cycle teams cars print would be an excellent pairing.
Check out my Jersey Pocket Podium of classic cycling jerseys, which also features David’s illustrations, here.
