For lovers of fine bicycles,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Elite Bicycle: Portraits of great marques, makers and designers (Hardcover)
Continuing the blizzard of excellent books about bicycles and their makers, this beautifully photographed and written account of a number of makers, from one-man to medium size, is a welcome new arrival. With excellent photography, giving a strong impression of the places of work and the makers, and informed descriptions of them , this is a valuable record of a flourishing industry. There will be makers that haven't been included, but the selection gives a breadth and overview that is impressive. The range of styles, experience and scale of operation is one of the strongest features of this book.
Compared to some other recent volumes of a similar type, the production quality is a bit disappointing; nasty brown cloth binding, and glossy but thin paper stock. Minor matters that shouldn't deter anyone from ordering this book.
