Rouleur Books – the World’s Finest Cycling Reportage

Team Sport are delighted to announce that Bloomsbury has launched a new cycling imprint with Rouleur – producers of the cult road cycling magazine and of beautiful, high quality cycling books.

Charlotte Croft, Head of the Bloomsbury Team Sport said:

“Rouleur represents the best in cycling publishing—and we are proud to be working in partnership with such a highly distinguished and respected brand to ensure these books reach the widest possible audience.

Stunning photography and gripping accounts mark Rouleur books out from the pack, and they have long been much admired and sought-after purchases for competitive athletes, keen amateur cyclists and armchair observers alike, making Rouleur books a must-have for any cycling fan.”

Rouleur Books will be produced and designed by Rouleur founder Guy Andrews and his team, with Bloomsbury providing the sales and marketing. The imprint, dedicated to publishing the best in cycling journalism and photography, will publish approximately six titles each year. The first titles, Coppi by Herbie Sykes, a lavish hardback examining the life of Fausto Coppi, who won the Tour de France in 1949 and 1952, and an updated edition of photography book Le Metier: The Seasons of a Professional Cyclist by Team Sky rider, Michael Barry, will be published in November 2012.

As Wired magazine recently commented:Rouleur is to bike magazines what National Geographic is to nature photography. Instead of glossy, well-lit portraits and fancy racing shots, its pages are filled with long, thoughtful photo spreads that drive deep narratives.
