A limited edition copy of the unfinished screen writing of Me and My Bike with a foreword by Sydney Box and illustrated by Leonora Box. This is the first of five major sequences planned for the film and is complete in itself – or would have been if he ever finished it. Dylan described the original operetta: ”It will be all about a man who loves a bicycle.. and covers the whole span of this man’s life. He rides penny farthings, tandems, tricycles and racing bikes – and when he dies at the end, he rides on his bike up a sunbeam straight to heaven, where he is greeted by a heavenly chorus of bicycle bells.”
