Yesterday in the mail I got a package from my friend Bill Humphreys. I’ve know Bill since I was a junior. He was a honch riding for the Raleigh Team with John Howard when I first bought a racing bike. We both never left the sport.
Anyway, in the package was a copy of a book that he did, The Jersey Project. Bill told me about the book a couple years ago and we sent him some photos of jerseys that I had tucked away over the years. There are 3 or 4 of my jerseys in the book. Anyway, I haven’t had a bunch of time to go through the book like I want to, but it is definitely worth owning if you’re into cycling. It really is an especially interesting way to use the beauty of the jerseys to help describe and define the history of the sport. You can go here, The Jersey Project, to get a book of your own.
I’m just about ready to brew up a cup of his coffee too. I’ll let you know how it is.
