Embrocation Volume 8 is here, close on the heels of Volume 7 released just a few months ago. Our focus has shifted for Volume 8, where you will find increased attention on art - from those who make art from used bicycle parts, to those who practice the fine art of the Director Sportif - Volume 8 is about craft and those who labor in the creation of art and life.
We explore art and art-makers in intimate behind-the-scenes portraits: from alcohol hazed trips through Como, to passion-fueled crafty folks plying their trade in making fine art from spent parts; from pit mechanics to director sportifs, to those who make their livings on the saddle, to cycling-inspired beverages you've never heard of, in Volume 8 we explore the hidden side of just about everything.
Volume 8 is not a summer buyers guide. It does not feature articles about how to lose weight and keep it off. It does not have gear reviews. It does not have a preview of the Tour de France. Neither laterally stiff nor vertically compliant, it is 108 pages of glorious printed goodness and if you love bikes or art or anyone who labors to produce beautiful things, we think you'll be smitten with our new release.
All orders with Volume 8 will begin shipping the week of July 2nd.
