Preserving Books and Libraries from Termites and Other Posts

Insects pose a serious threat to collections of all types. The environment that is the most damaging to collections—high humidity, poor air circulation, poor housekeeping—is the most beneficial to insects. Libraries and archives can provide insects with food, water, and shelter if the building is accessible and conditions welcoming. If insect damage is evident in a library collection, a careful survey should be conducted using sticky traps to see what types of insects are causing the problem.

Bike! A tribute to the world's greatest racing bicycles

Today I’m admiring this beautiful book on racing bicycles. It’s a solid slab of bound paper with gorgeous pictures and well-written no-nonsense text that sucks you right in.

Bike! A tribute to the world's greatest racing bicycles

Bike! A Tribute to the World’s Greatest Racing Bicycles is the first book to be produced on the history of the world’s most famous racing-bike and component manufacturers. Such names as Colnago, Gitane, Raleigh, Shimano, Pinarello, Peugeot, Gazelle and so many more.

The stuff of legends.

If you’re a bike-enthusiast, design addict or if you just love artisanship and precisely-made objects, this book is for you.

Even if you’re not into reading, get this book. It’ll look good on your shelf or desk. And once you open it and start flicking through the pages splattered with pictures of bicycles, bicyclists, technical details and historical races you’ll probably end up reading it anyway.

It’s that good.

Bike! A Tribute to the World’s Greatest Racing Bicycles is for sale on eBay, and it comes with a free postage in Australia. For international buyers, the postage is calculated.
