BIG IDEA Rapha marks this month’s Tour de France with adoptive nostalgia. You may not have been alive when Jacques Anquetil won the ’62 Tour, but Rapha’s new “Five Decades” T-shirt collection evokes the French champ’s jersey; the series also nods to four other iconic Tour kits. “Cycling fans don’t have much to wear,” Rapha’s Chris DiStefano notes. “This subtly expresses love for the sport.” $60 each, $240 for the collection; rapha.cc

WORKSHOP Marcus Fischer creates his charming animal prints with Letraset, the analog rub-off typography system. “Back in the ’90s, I used Letraset to make zines and fliers,” the 35-year-old Portlander recalls. “Then I came across a huge score at Goodwill—lots of fonts and symbols.” Fischer says his images contain “no secret messages.” etsy.com/shop/seedlingpress
