SWIPE. Today marks the one year anniversary since I hit the Kickstarter target in order to manufacture my first book ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰
-
Leading up to this I'd had to endure a nine month legal battle in order to get the publishing rights returned to me, a project which stood as a real labour of love written, photographed, designed and proofed by myself and my good lady @loart_graphics
-
The last 12 months have been an amazing journey, not only seeing the book supported via worldwide pre-orders and subsequent sales - currently over 800 copies sold in the 10 months since printed - but also with the amazing offer of launch events across the globe.
-
We've been fortunate enough to hold launches in Warsaw, London, Paris, Amsterdam, Dรผsseldorf and New York, all with the amazing support of generous hosts and engaged audiences.
-
My huge thanks to all those who made these launches possible, and all the contributors to the book including some of the largest brands in cycling, renowned designers, former pro cyclists and avid collectors - the fantastic reaction to the book has stood as a testament to your generous and enthusiastic involvement.
-
Above all its down to all of you who supported the @kickstarter campaign to make this book a reality, and to those of you who have purchased copies since, my deepest thanks.
-
The remaining books are still selling regularly, with this week seeing copies shipped to readers in Denmark, the U.K, Malaysia and the U.S.
Over 800 copies of the 1,000 unit print run have now been sold - if you'd like to secure one of the last 150 units then don't delay!

3BP x @alludens.official.
The gorgeous and tactile chain-stitching on this Italian amateur team jersey meets the refined styling of the 'Patron' watch by Alludens.
-
I've had a few brands reach out to me in the past here @threebackpockets, but these have until now resulted in a polite decline. However, when the good folk at @alludens.official got in touch a while back I was immediately impressed by both their ethos and range of products - ones that I felt made a perfect partner to my own personal philosophy here at 3BP.
-
This meeting of allies illustrated in this image - the understated and elegant aesthetics of both watch and jersey, making an effortlessly stylish combination.

This tasty morsel very firmly taking the top spot in the 'No pro-team, no problem!' catalogue.
-
No idea as to the team background and manufacturer, care label is present listing it as the rarely used 70%/30% wool acrylic mix.
-
Some of the finest chain-stitched detailing I've ever come across is present on this item, a dark horse and an absolute star.
-
See today's other posts for more shots of this stunning jersey.

Aside from the kit, I'm in love with the graphic language of cycling as a whole.
-
One thing I find of great interest is observing the evolution of the designs surrounding the sport, as they followed the general design trends of the day.
-
A great example seen here in today's posts, the evolution of these TDF special edition covers from the French magazines Miroir Sprint & Miroir du Cyclisme.
-
Here we have the cover for the Tour of 1949, an image which perfectly shows the heroic labour of the riders within the simple roots of the sport.
-
All these covers available as fine art prints, direct from the 3BP website store.

The 1983 jersey from the Italian GIS Gelati team.
-
Such a strong catalogue of designs during this teams thirteen year lifespan, during which the technical advances in jersey production had a direct influence on the kit designs, from their beginnings in 1978 with understated strong graphics, which slowly evolved into more and more elaborate offerings, made possible by the creative freedom afforded by the ground breaking direct printing process of dye-sublimation.
-
This item finds itself up against the GIS Gelati team jersey of 1981 in today's voting in the 'Vintage Jersey Battle Royale โ„ข', so far 100 votes cast and it's almost a split decision.
