New Scans of Daniel Rebour drawings

I have digitized most of the bicycle related Rebour drawings from the French magazine „Le Cycle“ 1945 - 1974 and published the scans on Flickr with kind permission of Martine Rebour, sole living heir of Daniel Rebour.
French captions and articles were transcribed and translated and can be found below the scans on Flickr.

„Le Cycle“ is the main source for bicycle related Rebour drawings. He was chief editor for that magazine. His drawings first appeared in that magazine, except from catalogue or other sorts of advertising drawings. There were 488 editions of „Le Cycle“ from 1945 to 1974.

First scan:
https://www.flickr.com/photos/414206...n/photostream/

Short Flickr manual:
Wait until the page has completely loaded. Click on the arrow on the right side of your screen to browse through the scans.
Or click on "Back to photostream" in the upper left corner. There you'll get an overview of the scans, 100 per page.

Major part of this project is a pdf-file. It has all texts aggregated, with direct weblinks to the corresponding scans. It is (of course) searchable (brandnames!) and therefore indispensible if you look for specific content.

You can find it here, at the bottom of the forumpost.

thanks so much for sharing these scans!
I first saw Mr. Rebour's drawings in the Cyclo-pedia catalog in the 1970's. They were impressive, and I always thought that, in some ways, they made the components look better than a photograph would.

Here's an example from the catalog....

steelbikeguy I've always thought the same. Another example - I used to get the old Campmor catalog and drawings were sometimes way more useful than photos.
