Igor Kenk - the world's most prolific Bike Thief
Nothing is more heartbreaking than having your bike stolen.
Unless you find your bike in a pawn shop and you can't "prove" it's yours... For years, Igor Kenk was regarded as the world's most prolific bike thief, and given the nearly 3000 stolen bikes police found when they raided his facilities, that title may still hold.
Alex Jansen, David Gilmore and Richard Poplak have created a visually stunning and massively compelling graphic novel about Igor Kenk and his life in Toronto, Ontario. The book, Kenk: A Graphic Portrait met critical acclaim and offers a very real perspective about the role of Igor Kenk and others like him as players in a significant yet somehow under-reported symptom of our socio-economic divide.
Alex Jansen has generously donated 5 copies of his book to fans of To Catch a Bike Thief, and we'd like to give them away to people that have been affected by Igor Kenk and other's like him.
From today until the end of the day on Sunday, May 20, post a story about finding your stolen bike at a pawn shop or on Craigslist/Ebay on our facebook timeline. Best story (as measured by most "likes") will win a signed copy of Kenk: A Graphic Portrait.
Thanks for being such excellent fans, and GOOD LUCK!
