Production Method

This letterpressed collection of cycling maps from three of the worlds most cyclist-friendly cities comes in at 10 by 26 inches, but it was printed on a press with a “maximum” print size of only 15 by 21 inches. How they did it, we may never know…

Project Description

This poster created by Pasteinplace for ArtCrank Portland features three of the world's top cycling cities drawn to the same scale. Each map includes the respective city's hydrological features (to provide orientation) and the cycling network. The cycling network shows all bicycle routes that are physically marked, including bicycle lanes, cycle tracks, bicycle boulevards and off-street bicycle paths.

The aim of this project is to encourage comparisons and speculation about similarities and differences between the cycling networks (and bicycle cultures) in these cities.

Production Lesson(s)

We printed this lovely informational poster on a Vandercook Universal 1 known for its great inking, impression, and registration capabilities. Although its print size is only 15x21 we were able to employ pure black magic to end up with an impeccably-registered 10x26 in print. How we did it will be a mystery :)”
