Formula 1 Coffee Table Book – Formula 1 is full of clichés about the past, about how motorsport used to be more compelling, more exciting, and just “better” when the cars were more prone to exploding into shrapnel and the sex was safer (if anyone can explain what this is real means besides a weak synonym for “free love,” let us know). Even in its hectic and closed atmosphere today, Grand Prix racing has remained the essential entry point for a motoring enthusiast with an interest in competition, and why wouldn’t it be? After all, these are the most technologically intriguing machines on wheels outside of rovers meant to crawl on other planets. Because of the immense and continuing popularity of the sport after the war, it can often feel that there is nothing new to say, nothing new to see. But despite the amount of documentation out there and the number of people parroting it among themselves, there are still certain storytellers (besides the stories themselves) who can cut through the noise and deliver something authentic and inspired like another packaging of old news.
We’ve added two new coffee table-quality books to the store that we think fit this description. Richard Kelley and Rainer W. Schlegelmilch have some of the deepest and most impressive portfolios of any automotive photojournalist of all time, and with these two books their bodies of work in Formula 1 are carefully consolidated into these definitive volumes.
Formula 1 Coffee Table Book
All the big names are here, captured in the cockpit, in the paddocks, in their elements: Jim Clark, Jacky Ickx, Jack Brabham – to name just a few. Featuring Schlegelmilch’s captivating photographs, this exceptional volume is a way to relive or rediscover a bygone era of F1 racing. A wonderfully competitive and charismatic group of drivers can be seen in the collection of photos, as well as their supporting casts in the pits. Rainer W. Schlegelmilch has been a motorsport photographer since 1962.
Formula 1: The Impossible Collection By Brad Spurgeon
The Golden Age of Formula 1 is a kaleidoscope of sports. Schlegelmilch embodies the competition itself, but the candids, portraits and more intimate look at the human elements are what defines this collection. If something as vague as atmosphere and mood can be conveyed in a still photo, there is plenty of supporting evidence in here. It’s one thing to have an all-access ticket to get behind the scenes, but here’s the extra element of these views filtered through the lens of someone who really knows how to tell a story without words.
Waiting is the story of a new photojournalist immersed in the most radical decades of Formula 1: the 70s and 1980s.
Just 19 years old, Richard Kelley saw the need to faithfully document the deadly dangers, iconic personalities and technological developments of the sport during a period of seismic change, causing the uniqueness of F1 to disappear forever. After only nine months of photographic education, Kelley began using his remarkable talent to observe and capture the decisive moments of F1 drivers. He searched for his images like a fly on the wall, consciously disappearing among this band of brothers to mix the emotion and the power of the moment, and developed a film style that grows more contemporary every year.
Formula 1: The Impossible Collection’ Is The Ultimate Coffee Table Book For Racing Fans
Waiting is a powerful and unique documentary of the world of F1 from 1972 to 1984. From Gilles Villeneuve’s first moments with Ferrari to Francois Cevert’s final dawn and Niki Lauda’s resurrection, Kelley’s omnipresent lens and illuminating memoir capture an intimacy and humanity that Grand Prix will never testify again. This beautifully bound, 48 page coffee table book, written by journalist Joe Saward with a foreword by 1992 world champion Nigel Mansell, accompanies the Jersey Post stamp issue celebrating 75 years since the birth of Formula 1, specifically dedicating itself to the ten British drivers who’ t have achieved the ultimate distinction of world champion.
Award-winning artist Keith Burns’ fabulously dynamic artwork features each of these champions of the sport dueling with their rivals. From the brutally dangerous 1950s and 1960s where drivers such as Mike Hawthorn, Graham Hill and the extraordinary Jim Clark faced serious injury or violent death as an ever-present reality, to those competing in the current era , mastering their incredible technological marvels of cars; drivers such as Jenson Button and the multiple title-winning Lewis Hamilton.
This premium version of the book comes with the stamps and miniature sheets of both Formula One issues mounted in the book.
