"Bicycle" - Stunning Illustration by Ugo Gattoni

Stylized word Bicycle with impressionist versions of bikes

It's a gorgeously detailed 5 meter long illustration of a bike race in London by Ugo Gattoni  Notable places in London are captured as the bicycle race passes through.  Sites include St. Paul's Cathedral, Big Ben and Smithfield meat market.

 I love that the pig's head is coming out of the market because I used to walk by it on my way to work and my lasting memory of the market was of a barrel of pigs heads and getting asked to leave because I was taking pictures.
"Bicycle is a giant leporello book by Ugo Gattoni and published by Nobrow Press

Released in time for the London 2012 Olympics"
