1971 Peace Race Poster
Krzysztoforski's 1971 poster depicts the four leader's jerseys. The blue of the team competition is indicative of the paradoxical nature of the race. The socialist context in which it was set determined that the team competition was much more significant than in the commercial races of the west. Its symbolism was colossal. The thinking went that it could only be won by setting aside personal ambition and working as part of a co-operative. This, cycling as political metaphor, was invariably lost on visiting western teams.

Framing advice: As the dimensions of the posters are not of a standard size, we recommend using a bespoke framing service to properly display the Peace Race posters. To take the best possible care of these prints, it is also recommended that a non-reflective, U-V protective glass is used, along with an acid free backing board.
