The Design Museum's mission is to celebrate, entertain, and inform. It is the world's leading museum devoted to contemporary design in every form from furniture to graphics, and architecture to industrial design. It is working to place design at the centre of contemporary culture and demonstrates both the richness of the creativity to be found in all forms of design, and its importance.

As the title suggests, the book is about fifty bicycles or technologies that have made a significant step in the process of bicycle design, innovation and those bikes that are iconic in some way or other.
The range of bikes covered, if from the penny farthing to the latest Pinarello ridden by the Sky team. Other models include the Schwinn, the chopper, Boardman's Lotus bike and the Moulton. Each bike has a well written piece of text and images. There are some exquisite bikes in here; and even the one that I ride!
The range of bikes is wide and the arguments for their importance is well stated, in an objective way.
good pictures, good value, a keeper !
Dare I say it 'spoke' to the recipient!
