Great picture of Paul Weller holding up a copy of the yellow times… Wait! No it’s Sir Bradley Wiggins. Ok ok piss take aside, the guy has got some style and will for evermore be the first Brit to win a famous cycling race in France – got to love a bloke who does that, right? This Opus and yes the company who produced it is called Opus is a thing to behold. The book is massive in more ways than one.*
The Classic edition is £199, let alone the the 101 limited edition version at a eye watering £1,199. Still all that aside it’s a work of art. With tons of super photos by Scott Mitchell who I think takes some of the most compelling images in cycling and caught a unprecedented documentary of Sir Bradley on his way to yellow.
The book is smart enough not to follow the usual flow of images too. I just hope us mere mortals get a chance to flick through this. A nice journal version at a peasant like price would be good but if you can afford enquire here. The rest of us can have a poke round the site here.
*Fact: this book in it’s case weighs in at 15kg!
