This book very much focuses in on, and around, the 'London' cycle style, with the mix of fashions and functions; but all beautifully photographed and captured in this book.
I'm finding myself happily flicking through the pages and soaking up all the little details. Perhaps my only criticism could be that some subjects are repeated and the soft binding may not last the test of time. However, these are only very minor things against the vibrancy of the book and the images. It certainly frames a small slice of modern cycle styles - It's fab!
My Son was every pleased with this book and enjoyed comparing the different clothing from cyclist to cyclist.
Lovely photographs all the same and on the whole I think a very well put together book.
.....So if my Son is happy then I am too!!
Three stars from me but obviously it would be four had my Son been writing this review.
I love the references at the back of each picture and bike model.
My only gripe is, I would have loved to see what those who were photographed would wear when the weather is bad! I'm sure there's style in all the weathers. A sequel perhaps?
Howver, first impressions are of cool, young hip irban cyclists posing with their bikes. But once you get further through the book you start seeing the same bikes over again. A shame, as I think the true dynamic of this book should have been exactly that, cool young city slickers and hipsters with their cool custom rides rather than (I suspect) mostly models on oethr peoples bikes.
Still an enjoyable book thats sits either on my library shelf or coffee table.
She hastily flicked through the pages and wrote me a text message. A lover of good photography and a keen bicyclist, I instantly knew I had to get this book. I've seen a lot of good pictures, but the ones captured in this book are simply Amazing! They're just something else. The book contains no text, just pictures, but the author says it all with them.
The pictures make up for a tremendous mix of good style, looks, clothes, fantastic bikes and just beautiful human beings. No matter if you love classic garment or just fascinating bicycles of great variation, it gives you the best of both worlds.
This IS what bicycling with style is all about. The definitive mix and blend, all through the lens of a camera in the hands of a very very skilled photographer.
Needless to say, I love the book.
this book is in a nice format, big enough too enjoy the images.
good quality print and paper too.
the only thing I would have liked more is a little print maybe at the end of the book stating name of the subject and location and maybe some comments.
