Product Description

First introduced in to the Tour de France in 1910, the same year of the great race's first foray in to the high mountains, the "Voiture Balai" is a true demon that plagues the minds of the peloton., hunting every rider, particularly the weak. The "Voiture Balai", or "Broom Wagon" when translated, is the offical vehicle that follows at the very back of the race. It hangs like a ghoul and despite being behind the riders and out of their gaze they can feel its evil shadow lurking menacingly. If a rider is caught by the "Voiture Balai" he is out of the race. He has to climb off his bike, unceremoniously unpin his racing number and climb inside the vehicle, almost as if he has been consumed by this vulture of "Le Tour"

The most iconic "Broom Wagon" was in the form of a Citroen H-Van. This model was used, with symbolic broom strapped to its roof, from just after World War II through to the early 1960's. It's this incarnation, with its memorable, classic lines and imposing silhouette that has inspired our "Voiture Balai" print.

The perfect piece for any interior wall our "Voiture Balai" original hand screen print is designed and produced here in our "Printworks". Printed on to 300gsm, rough, Bockingford watercolour paper in a waterbased ink this is a limited run of just 100 prints.
