Bicycle Mania Holland
Never before has anyone captured the essence of the Dutch cycling culture – until now.
American photojournalist Shirley Agudo – a long-term resident of the Netherlands – captures it all in her surprising and fun images. Depicted are people transporting ‘anything and everything’ on their bikes – from tables and mattresses to the wildly popular bakfiets overflowing with children – along with witty and bizarre bike designs, and the practical (and not so practical) side of a country having more bicycles than people.
Old, young, barely-walking and, yes, even naked cyclists have been captured in all their glory in Shirley Agudo’s fascinating volume of photography about the Dutch cycling mania. Pertinent statistics and interviews provide further insight into the history and infrastructure.
Great souvenir and gift book for tourists and bicycle liefhebbers alike. Also for sale at major book stores in the Netherlands and www.hollandbooks.nl.
