The newest pop-up book from renowned paper engineer Dominique Ehrhard artfully traces two centuries of bicycling history and lore. Perfect for seasoned bikeaholics and budding pedal-pushers alike, this brief, whimsical history of the bicycle features eight meticulously crafted pop-up scenes. There’s Karl Drais’ 1817 invention that featured two wheels and little else to propel it; how technical advances at the end of the 19th century saw an upsurge in the popularity of bicycling among women; we see the first mountain bikes from the Klunkerz of California and Coloarado; and a scene from the Tour de France. From high-wheelers to hipsters on wheels, Dominique Ehrhard offers glimpses of biking trends that flickered briefly and flamed out and others that have stood the test of time. As biking grows in popularity as a climate-friendly alternative to the automobile, this gem of a book is a perfect keepsake for bike-lovers of all ages.
