Amazing! 4 neil says: June 15, 2008 at 10:44 pm these are great! that first one could not be any nicer 5 Scott says: June 16, 2008 at 12:15 am 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. 6 frederico says: June 16, 2008 at 4:52 am i am a daily viewer, i really like the fact that you have a very personal style…not very common nowadays. keep posting this blog is amazing and very inspiring Scott. 7 jasper F. Agterbosch says: June 19, 2008 at 10:26 am 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 .. 8 jasper F.

Too funny then. Coincidence! 10 Nath says: March 18, 2010 at 4:21 am 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. 11 TRMW says: March 22, 2010 at 4:11 pm I think the last link in description (“Citroen 2cv Pages”) is pointing to the wrong place. :) 12 toshineza says: July 6, 2010 at 11:57 pm 1976: That’s my year! I definitely love the 70s for the way they would melt geometrics & typography as one entity.
