Cool Display

This Thursday Type Books in Toronto will be launching Kenk, a graphic novel about the notorious bicycle thief Igor Kenk. Kenk was arrested in 2008 and over 3,000 bikes were found in his possession. The New York Times has called him "the world's most prolific bicycle thief". Craig Small, who is working on the companion movie to the graphic novel, put together this amazing window.
There has been a huge amount of buzz and controversy around this book. Richard Poplak the author has done an incredible job of presenting a balanced work on a very difficult subject. Nick Marinkovich is the illustrator behind this work...I saw a video on how he put them together and was pretty impressed.
