    Back in the Day: The Rise of Skateboarding

    Back in the Day features hundreds of Skateboard World photographer William Sharp’s astounding photos from the late 1970s, most of which have never been seen before. The work is priceless, not only for its documentary value, but for the beautiful and poetic images captured and later developed by Sharp himself (many in black and white). Pipes in Arizona, aqueducts in California, pools all over the place, the locales and images must be seen to be believed.

  • Chopper, The: The Real Story

    Chopper, The: The Real Story

    The chopper is quintessentially American and, since Easy Rider, has embodied the American dream. In this book, leading motorcycle journalist and vintage motorcycle expert Paul d'Orleans tells the iconic motorcycle's true story, from its origins to its renaissance today. With its well-informed texts and showcase of historical and contemporary photographs, it finally gives the chopper the respectful attention it deserves. Whether you collect custom motorcycles or want to throw rocks at those biker freaks who leave you deaf as they zoom by, you need to know the story of the chopper. Because the story of the chopper is the story of popular culture. The Great Depression, 1960s youth culture, folk art, the conservative press, old-school revivals - the chopper plays a part in all of these. The book provides insight into legendary builders such as Arlen Ness, super-cool riders both male and female, 'patch club' motorcycle gangs, ingenious Japanese workshops, and the young enthusiasts who are now reviving the chopper's popularity.

  • Cycling Lexicon, A: Bicycle Headbadges from a Bygone Era

    Cycling Lexicon, A: Bicycle Headbadges from a Bygone Era

    The headbadge has been affixed to finer bicycles for over a century. Made of steel, brass, copper, aluminium and silver, and using elaborate techniques such as die-pressing and acid etching, manufacturers transformed these badges into works of art. The badges, selected from the collection of American Jeff Conner, are given new life in this beautifully designed book by Phil Carter of Carter Wong design. Naturally, you'll find brands such as Schwinn and Raleigh well represented, but also more obscure makers such as Riv'ton, Lapize, Napoleon, Mirax, Lutetia and Magneet abound, making this the ultimate cult collection. Includes a foreword by (Sir) Paul Smith.

    Ride, The: New Custom Motorcycles and Their Riders

    The Ride explores motorcycle riding as it is meant to be: as a means of getting around with attitude, as an extension of one's own body, as an expression of personal freedom, but also as a significant challenge to technical expertise, craftsmanship, physics, discipline, and driving skill.

The motorcycle is currently undergoing an aesthetic rebirth: a young subculture worldwide is discovering the motorcycle as an expression of its personality and creativity.
