Parr's vivid shots, sometimes poignant, often hilarious, provide a unique overview of life on and off the court, from players to picnickers, sun-hats, and visors to rain-stopped-play. From a brand-new body of work, with many photographs published here for the first time, this limited edition is an ace gift for collectors, tennis fanatics, and fans of pop-culture photography. A limited-edition colour print, signed and numbered by Parr, is beautifully presented in a special presentation box, with a signed and numbered copy of the book.
