Out of stock


It’s a long time, a century! But what a wealth, this sum of moments. The 24 Hours of Le Mans even subdivides, each year, its famous double clock tower into very small seconds and even down to tenths. A day of intense emotion, for a passionate public as much as for the drivers. The poster artists, designers, photographers and computer graphics artists called upon by the Automobile Club de l’Ouest, founder, organizer and guardian of the event, have tried each year to represent or symbolize this magic, this snapshot of endurance. A collection that mixes precious artistic nuggets and simple commercial messages, but even those that were considered banal when they appeared are steeped in the spirit of the times and the art of the times. A carefully compiled collection of moments of speed, all the posters of the 24 Hours of Le Mans between 1923 and 2022 are reproduced here.
