My first exposure to BMX came from two small books in my elementary school’s library and a short video segment about freestyle on Reading Rainbow. Flashy vector graphics and neon colors wrapped around this new-to-me thing called freestyle. I still look back fondly at the visual styles that surrounded those years of fascination and attempts to perfect my rock walk.
“Let’s Go Get Cokes” is Nick Ferreira’s latest publication under the Amigos Publishing umbrella. Featuring “well-worn” photos from an anonymous former BMX pro, “Let’s Go Get Cokes” is framed with visual inspiration from early 90s BMX magazines. If you have any appreciation for this time period in BMX, I think you’ll enjoy the read. Check out the Amigos online store to order a copy.
