The bicycle is “the official car of Portlandia”

Posted by on November 14th, 2012 at 12:50 pm

BoingBoing got an advance copy of a new comedy book from the makers of the Portlandia TV show. It’s titled, Portlandia: A Guide for Visitors and the first impression is that it’s as funny as the show itself.

Here’s a fun excerpt from the intro:

A guide for getting around, either by foot, or by bicycle, the official car of Portlandia. Featured also are the 9 official bicycle rules of the road, drawn up by Spyke and his bike comrades. Not to be ignored!

The book is available at Powells.com. You can also see Portlandia stars Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein at an event for the book taking place at Powell’s on November 20th. Details here.

Your Powells.com link to buy the book doesn’t work nor does the link for more details about the November 20th event.

it’s working for me right now… although “We’re sorry, this event is sold out.”… but there’s still a link to buy the book…
