Swiss S.R.B. Bicycle Federation Poster
1933 Man on Large-wheeled BikeWhat better say to spin the wheels of nostalgia than to roll out the fascinating image of a bygone era. Opting to take a backward glance rather than recreate the familiar state of the contemporary scene, the Swiss Bicycling Federation calls upon the magnetic, nearly surreal, high-wheeler that begot the entire cycling movement to promote their week-long Gathering in Zurich. Before receiving private artistic training, Huber began his studies as a mechanical engineer. He was an active commercial artist in Zurich, designing posters, bookplates and illustrations, with particular attention paid to military themes.
