Set of all 3 'Bicycle Portraits' books
Divided over 3 books, each contains a different 54 stories, and also two essays each by local South African and major international cycling figures, including Nobel prize-winnig author J.M. Coetzee and the godfather of mountain biking, Gary Fisher.
The books are designed by [ link hidden ] and they have also collaborated with celebrated South African artist [ link hidden ] to create an individual hand-painted watercolor map, based on Google Maps, to indicate the location of each of the portraits.
When they started the project, Bicycle Portraits aimed to be a study of South African commuter culture, and they wanted to find out who rides bicycles, why they ride bicycles, if and why they love their bicycles, and of course why so few South Africans choose bicycles as a transport option. But Bicycle Portraits has turned into a portrait of a nation through the bicycles that they own and ride every day - revealing all manner of social, class, historical and cultural nuances never imagined.
