Yesterday I spent the day at Repeat Press in Somerville, MA. Michael Dacey—the man behind it all—printed the limited edition Major Taylor piece I have been talking about for a while. Each of these 2-color prints is 6″ x 9″ and signed/numbered.
Recap: Marshall “Major” Taylor (26 November 1878–21 June 1932) was an American cyclist who won the world one-mile track cycling championship in 1899 after setting numerous world records and overcoming racial discrimination. Renowned as The Fastest Bicycle Rider In The World in the early 1900’s, accredits his success as a world champion to the value of good habits and clean living.
Major Taylor was from Worcester, MA
Illustrated and printed by hand in Boston, MA
