Wired world

The postman brought us a treat this morning: volume 12 of WIRED Japan, with a big beautiful chunk of stuff about modern cycling and design, including a page about Boneshaker. We can’t read Japanese, so we’ll have to trust that they’ve said good things about us. It certainly looks good anyway. Top work, Taeko and the team in Tokyo. Check out WIRED Japan here. To bag the latest copy of Boneshaker, slide your slippery fingers thissaway.

Hot off the press

City of Bristol-20140401-01437

With the giddy anticipation of a father-to-be, I pedalled dangerously fast across the mean streets of inner Bristol to witness our latest offspring – Boneshaker #14 – come rolling off the hallowed Heidelberg presses at Taylor Brothers. Biased as a parent though I am, this one feels like the best yet. Alongside funny writing and fresh illustration from Stanley Donwood (yup, Radiohead’s go-to album artworker), there’s plenty of bone-crunching mishap, sun-bleached adventure and thoughts from the road. Expect an almighty geek-out at the beauty of headbadges, a meeting with Madrid’s master frame-builder, and an array of bonkers bicycle-related inventions from centuries past. It’s been a wild ride.

We’ll have the mag back from the printers next week, ready to ship to our beloved stockists as soon as we can parcel them up. Want to get yours first? Subscribe here.

We Are BIP

Boneshaker’s proud to be a founder-member of Bristol Independent Publishers: a group of independent publishers who run their magazines out of Bristol, UK. We’ve banded together to help showcase the wonderful things happening in Bristol publishing, and to prove that some of the best UK magazines aren’t coming out of multi-national print houses – but small studio spaces, back rooms and coffee shops.

And lookee here – we’re having a little party to celebrate all that, at Boneshaker’s friendly home-from-home, the cycle cafe Roll for the Soul.

It’ll be a laid-back night thick with the smell of lovely printed things. And beer. Roll on down!
