The First Ride is a 3 color linocut print, 15″ x 21.5″, limited edition of 75, commemorative print for the 75th anniversary of Albert Hoffmann’s Bicycle day! This print will depict Albert Hoffmann’s view as he rode his bike through the town of Basel, Switzerland in 1943. This print is an edition of only 75 and will release on my website at 9pm EST on Bicycle Day, April 19th, exactly 75 years after Hoffman’s first ride. There will be variants!
“Kaleidoscopic, fantastic images surged in on me, alternating, variegated, opening and then closing themselves in circles and spirals, exploding in colored fountains, rearranging and hybridizing themselves in constant flux.” – Albert Hoffmann, Bicycle Day journal entry.
