Like rice, the bicycle is deeply ingrained in China's culture. Once a sign of backwardness, the "people's vehicle" is now enjoying a hip revival. 11 unique tyre tracks went into creating the Forbidden City – one of which belongs to the legendary Flying Pigeon.

What is an Artist Proof?
Artist’s Proofs are additional prints not included in, but of the same quality as, the regular limited edition. In the early days of printing, Artist’s Proofs were the first prints pulled off the plate or stone, which was drawn or etched on by the artist to create the image on the print. As more prints were pulled off the plate, the plate wore down, thus the Artist’s Proofs were the sharpest and had the best colors of the entire print run. With today’s modern printing technology, the lithograph prints in the production run are nearly identical. Artist’s Proofs usually number 10% - 20% of the limited edition size, with the normal range being 50 to 200 prints. Artist's proofs are not included in the count of a limited edition, and sometimes the number of artist's proofs, which belong to the artist, can be surprisingly high at twenty or more. Because of their low number, Artist’s Proofs are slightly more expensive than the regular limited edition. When the limited edition lithograph prints have sold out and are available only through a secondary market, the Artist’s Proofs should go up in value at a higher percentage rate than the limited edition prints. Artist’s Proofs are signed A.P., A/P, or Artist’s Proof. They may or may not be numbered.
