Distinct Art Deco style and bright, vibrant colors make this poster really really pop! Founded in 1918, Liberia was a strong regional brand with strong racing ties. Over the years, particularly after WWII, Liberia was a fixture on the racing circuit and sponsored several teams and top riders of the time. Ultimately, after more than 70 years, the brand folded in the early 1990s, one of a stream of regional brands that disappeared with the onslaught of less costly Taiwanese bikes that emerged into nearly every market in the world. From beginning to end, the company was a single family owned operation.
This poster has been archivally and professionally linen backed. Virtually all original vintage posters of this era were viewed as temporary advertising and were printed on very thin paper. While expensive, linen backing is a conservation method used to mount, stabilize, preserve and protect vintage posters so they can be displayed or framed without compromising value.
