Cyclogeography – Journeys of a London Bicycle Courier
By Jon Day
Day lifts the lid on the solitary life of the courier. Travelling the unmapped byways, short-cuts and edgelands of the city, couriers are the declining, invisible workforce of the city. The parcels they deliver – either commonplace or illicit – keep the city – and capitalism - running.
“Magically good. Jon Day conjures the secret city of the cyclist, revealing himself over the course of his swooping journeys as an astonishing writer, capable of dizzyingly elegant and thrilling flights of thought.” – Olivia Laing

Pilgrims Of The Air by John Wilson Foster
A story of a scarcely credible abundance, of flocks of birds so vast they made the sky invisible. Also a story, difficult to credit, of a collapse into extinction so startling to the inhabitants of the New World as to provoke a mystery. Publication of this beautifully written and painstakingly researched account coincides with the centenary of the death, on 1st September 1914, of the last known passenger pigeon in Cincinnati Zoo.
The first 100 to order will receive a copy signed by the author.
