Le Dernier Dimanche Riso Tour de France
We're Front Yard Party, a young independent print house based in Birmingham. We've just finished and launched our first project called: Le Dernier Dimanche, a range of 7 prints and a 46-page photo book of the final stage of the 2012 Tour de France. We went over to Paris in the summer and documented all aspects of this final day from the pre-race empty streets to the animated faces of the concluding sprint. We hosted a pop-up exhibition last Saturday and now have the limited run of books and prints on sale through our online shop.
About the book:
The book was hand finished in the UK by ourselves and was produced in an initial batch of just 99 copies to celebrate the centenary year of this annual spectacle. We used three colours which represent: motion, passion and order, the three key elements of this memorable day. The Risograph process gives a unique sense of quality, craftsmanship and timelessness which we feel is often missing from sport photography.
sorry, I forgot to add...
This looks awesome, I'm ordering one now!
