Hi Hubbers!

We NEED much love from you, we are printing the Bicycle Portraits book this December and still require a fair bit of loot. We are self publishing and raising the funds through the community by pre-orders of the project.

You can order your copy for a special pre-launch price and help us reach our print run goal. You will have your books February 2012.

We are very fortunate to be in a collaboration with artist Gabrielle Raaff who painting watercolor maps for each of the portraits! The maps are not to show the location of the person as much at it is to give a feeling of the surroundings.

The $250 reward inlcudes a unique 8' x 10' signed BICYCLE PORTRAITS portrait-with-map print. Maps are by artist Gabrielle Raaff.

So if you are looking for christmas presents we can always send you a print from the project this December or immediately of you order via EFT.

The $750 reward includes one of 5 unique limited-edition hand-woven Eddy Merckx portraits made by Tumi's Bicycle Club in Lesotho...
