James Straffon’s exhibition LE TOUR:FROM MAILLOT JAUNE TO LANTERNE ROUGE is celebrated in a beautiful 72 page hardcover book, with an introduction by David Millar, who sums it all up nicely, when he says:
"Since its inception Le Tour has been a race for writers, spawning some of the greatest sports literature written, yet artists very rarely take up the challenge of capturing it. This is not surprising considering what a chaotically epic spectacle the race can be; it is hard to capture what won’t be caught. James has taken up the challenge and found a visual vocabulary for the chaos, he has brought it all together: the Tour de France has become art."
This beautiful book is available to purchase now from the gallery for £30 plus postage and packing.
