J.woodward-
it’s funny, when I first saw these a couple months ago I was amazed at how similar the style was to my 1971 & Vuela prints and the 1976 shirt especially… but there’s no way I saw these as a kid, growing up in america we didn’t have citroen. I guess it’s just the overall vibe of that era that rubbed off… but still, the similarities are pretty crazy.

My parents were Citroen fans in those days (owning a car called an “ugly duck” 2cv) and we had posters around like these.
Citroen had a cool run of posters and promo’s in the early 80′s as well.
Nowadays they are hip and all .. C5 and so on.
Gladly I saw an old Citroen CX limousine turbodiesel passing me by on the highway just yesterday.
Just that car bring back memories of the 70′s style that was around in the … 70′s ..

Scott – being born in ’75, I think I’m now somehow obligated to put this on my next pair of skis (I get customs made so have control over top-sheet graphics). Of course therein lies the natural follow-on question:

Today’s skis have some pretty deep side-cut (imagine putting two Nutter Butters side-by-side) so how’s best to attack covering two skis to get the most coverage, but lose the least of the graphic?

I need to study perspective.
