Long before Lance Armstrong and the contempory Tour De France there was the first Tour. It involved craftsmen from many disaplines that trained at their respective crafts by traveling around France working at per specified towns with a master craftsman to learn their craft.
When they had passed the required training objectives they left for the next station and worked on the next step in their education.
This continued until they had spent time at all the stations. They then made a master craft project and graduated.
This is an exploritory book showing that process.
