A 1959 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith on the loose in New York City. This “book” was made by the author of a magazine article about this car and presented to people involved in that project.
by Koto Bolofo
Ok, there’s a Bugatti on the cover. But this is not a car book. Bolofo is a celebrated fashion photographer but he doesn’t wear “labels” easily. In this book you can explore his work exploring the goings-on at a famous restoration shop.

If you like to see London change over three decades, this is a splendid book. If you like to see its streets teeming with Rolls-Royces and Bentleys old and new, this is the only book. Almost 1000 photos tell the story.

Looked at one car at a time, the Baillon Collection is interesting enough but it is the unique circumstances of it being found and brought to market that will forever make it the “find of the century.”
by Knut Gielen
Any of the three Goodwood events are pretty much bucket list items. If you’ve never been, this book is a splendid way to see what it’s all about. If you have, ditto, because you couldn’t possibly have seen everything there is to see

The quiet moments, before a race when the mind settles in on the task at hand, or after, when the last hand has been played. Even the victor lugging his magnum of champagne looks oddly spent. These are the moments captured here.
