About the Book:

Bicycles Locked to Poles, the book (McSweeney’s, $14.00 U.S., $21.00 Canada), features 90 color photographs, a graphical guide to present, damaged and missing bicycle parts, and a quote from Marvin Minsky’s The Society of Mind. Bicycles Locked to Poles is a rare treasury for anyone interested in bikes, poles, locks or the forgotten artifacts of the urban landscape.
