Display: The Grand Depart -Tour de Lead Graffiti

A small display to celebrate the Tour de France’s fourth visit to the UK for the Grand Départ 2014.

Since 2011, in what they call an act of ‘endurance letterpress’, the American printers and designers Jill Cypher and Ray Nichols have produced a typographical response to each day of the three-week-long Tour de France – one of the most demanding and most beautiful sporting events in the world.

This display includes a selection of posters from the 2012 and 2013 editions of the Tour, the years in which the famed yellow jersey was won by Sir Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome respectively. 

Find it on Levels 2 and 3 at the back of the St Pancras building. 

Visitors to Boston Spa can also enjoy a small display of Tour de France-related material.
