Building on the successful launch of The Rough-Stuff Fellowship Archive books (among several others), the award-winning publishers at Isola Press are back with a fresh cycling-themed book. This time around, they take an in-depth look at the inspiring life of Californian cyclist and engineer Jobst Brandt (1935-2015), who helped influence the way we ride bikes today through his inventions and legendary group rides.
Throughout his lifetime, Jobst spent nearly 50 summers in the Alps, always riding a lightweight touring bike and pedaling more than 2,000 miles per trip, shooting a wealth of photos along the way to document his adventures. As a result, he left a legacy of thousands of inspiring images, maps, and more from his life and rides. All of these will be compiled into Isola Press’ new book, JOBST BRANDT RIDE BIKE!. It contains more than 200 images and 20,000 words, featuring contributions from Tom Ritchey, Gary Fisher, and Joe Breeze.
The book launched on Kickstarter this morning, and it has already raised around $12,000 of its $29,000 goal from more than 150 backers. Softcover books are available for £30, and there are early bird hardcover books starting at £36. Having read and enjoyed previous books from Isola Press, we’re sure this latest release will be beautifully produced and well worth reading.
You can find additional details and back the project over on Kickstarter. Books are expected to begin shipping in spring 2023.
