结束了在康沃尔的一段单车旅行后,平面设计师Nick Hand思索着若是沿着英国海岸骑一圈会有多远。所以一年之后的2009年,他开始了这段长约5000英里的冒险之旅。在途中,他访问了许多杰出的传统手艺人和工匠,如造船人、品茶人、自行车技师、奶酪制造者⋯⋯一年之后,他又在爱尔兰开展了一次同样的单车探访之旅。你可以在《Conversations on the Coast》一书中看到其中20个人的故事,另外也可以去他的网站观看访问视频。

During a cycling holiday in Cornwall, graphic designer Nick Hand wondered how long it would take to cycle right around the British coast and back to the same point. So a year later he did just that, setting off on a 5,000 mile adventure, and interviewing some of the fascinating folk he met, from a boat builder to a tea taster. A year later he did a similar trip round Ireland and all the interviews live on his website as compelling digital stories but now 20 of them have been brought together in a new book, Conversations on the Coast.
