Published in conjunction with the LE TOUR exhibition, this elegantly understated 76-page book, produced by Rapha Racing, celebrates the artwork on show, as well as the extraordinary stories which make this the greatest race in the world. Accompanying the LE TOUR exhibition, presented in London during July 2012, this book is a reproduction of the physical artworks that formed the show.
Incorporating a buckram quarter-bound, hardback cover, and debossed title treatment, this fine art book parallels the delicate printing materials used within the artworks of the 2012 show. With colour images throughout, and eight pages covering the stories and heroes of the race, LE TOUR - from Maillot Jaune to Lanterne Rouge is an epitaph to tradition and craftsmanship.
With a foreword written by British cyclist David Millar, the LE TOUR book was produced in a single print run, with limited numbers.
"...the Tour de France has become art," suggests Millar.
