When people think of the words "bike messenger", I'm sure a wide variety of words come to mind. Some bad, some REALLY bad. One word that I think everyone can agree on is "style". Many different people from many different backgrounds being linked by one common interest is bound to bring out a wide variance in self-expression. Put them in one place at one time and you've got something special.

Mr. Christopher Dilts, a local photographer and a modern renaissance man of sorts, has captured these varying expressions with a compilation of portraits from Chicago's NACCC. He has done us all a great service by taking it a step further and putting it in book form.  The book is available here for a very reasonable $29.95 softcover and/or $59.95 hardcover.
