The book is a wonderful assortment of images from the continental grand prix of the period 1934-39. Fellowes' work remained unseen for many, many years until purchased at auction by contemporary historic collector and racer Neil Comer. The collection captures the spirit of pre-war racing and features snapshots of many of the era's gods — Nuvolari, Caracciola and Rosemeyer, as well as the fearsome racing machines produced by Auto Union and Mercedes. The quality of the photography improves throughout the book and each image is accurately and insightfully captioned by Nixon.
Here is the history of the epic battles in the 1930s between the supercharged Grand Prix cars of Mercedes-Benz and Auto Union. The picture book presents a comprehensive portrait of the golden age of motor racing.
This book is essentially a celebration of two of the outstanding sportsracing cars of the 1950s, the Aston Martin DBR1 and the Ferrari Testa Rossa and the author covers them in detail, with the help of personal reminiscences of many of the people who took part. Enrich the volume a wealth of unpublished photographs, many in rare colour, to illustrate the story of this two magnificent sportscars and their battle for the world championship from 1957 up to 1959.
This is the definitive photograhic record of Donald Campbell’s legendary Bluebirds. Captured through the lenses of Leo Villa’s Stereo Realist Camera, and other images of the time. The book included also the 3D Glasses.
Duerden’s photography is little known, but this superb book should change that. Primarily looking at an eight-year window, from the first Goodwood meeting to the 1956 International Trophy Meeting at Silverstone, it’s a vivid record of the British racing scene. Amazingly, Duerden never had press access but you’d never guess that from looking at his evocative and superbly composed images. The beautifully printed 240-page title also covers later assignments for Mobil, including Economy Runs and the Bluebird Water Speed Record runs at Coniston Water. Goodwood historian Barker helped Duerden to fill in the background to these marvellous monochromes.
