The story of one of sport’s most amazing events—the Tour de France—is told in both words and images in this impressively vibrant pop-up history. Invoking the sense of freedom and adventure that cycling brings to people of all ages, this visual chronicle uses eight intricate, colorful 3-D scenes to illustrate the unique traditions, strategies, and heroism of the annual quest for the yellow jersey.
