1920s/30s ‘Bibendum’ (Michelin Man) posters

As a kid I always liked the old version of the Michelin Man. My dad restores vintage cars and many of his friends in the vintage car club he belongs to collect old MM tin signs and paraphernalia.

Best of all, I love the old cigar toking, monocle-sporting, mummy-esque looking ‘Bibendum’ (his real name) of the 20s and 30s. He’s kinda scary looking but so very, very cool and sophisticated. Nothing like the lame ‘cartoonish’ Michelin Man of today who looks like he’s advertising children’s cereal.
