Air & Water: Rare Porsches, 1956–2019
by The Saratoga Auto Museum
The name of the author is the clue that this is a book about the Steven Harris Porsches that the museum featured in two separate exhibits in 2021. Many of his cars really are rare, and while he does drive them they live in different parts of the US and even the world. This book brings some of them together.
The Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Book
by René Staud & Jürgen Lewandowski
Examples from all series of SLs, almost 70 years worth, as German photographer René Staud sees them. And he’s seen many, probably 500, and photographing SLs has been one constant in his decades-long career.
Mercedes-Benz – The Grand Cabrios & Coupés
by René Staud (photos), Jürgen Lewandowski (text)
Who needs coupés and cabrios is what this book asks. Unless the answer is self-evident in these photos you’ll have to come up with your own.
by Peter Nygaard
A great book by a Danish photographer who is also an ardent student of the sport. Many hundreds of photos for absurdly little money. In a hardcover book with a rounded spine—are we living in the Matrix??
Ken Miles (Two books about_]
-by Dave Friedman
-by Art Evans
If you watched the very engaging 2019 movie Ford v Ferrari you would have formed an opinion about Ken Miles. Probably not a great one and certainly not a balanced one. These two books paint a fuller picture by bringing many more voices to the table.
Behind Le Mans – The Film In Photographs
by Michael Keyser
It’s almost 50 years ago that this movie was made. It was not a box office hit but—and this is the only thing that mattered to the one person who needed to make it, Steve McQueen—it was true to racing, life and death, few words and big deeds.
The Ferrari Book: Passion for Design
by Jürgen Lewandowski
Is there such a thing as too many Ferraris? Or too many Ferrari books? Nah. But this 10-pounder has challenges beyond its mere heft. Those Michael Zumbrunn photos, though. Bellisima.
The Other Side of the Fence: Six Decades of Motorsport Photography
by Bill C. Warner
You surely recognize Warner’s name. You may even know that he’s done more than mount one of the Top 10 concours for half a decade—but did you know he’s a photographer, and a race car driver? Both of these things come into play in this book.
Shutter & Speed 2
by Gary Critcher
Vol. 1 sold well enough to make possible the hoped-for vol. 2, again offering previously unseen motorsports images. The emphasis is on GP racing but there’s also F2, Indy 500, hillclimbs, and non‐championship F1 races.
The Racers: The Personal Scrapbook of Al Satterwhite
by Al Satterwhite
A scrapbook is not a museum show or a historical treatise so calibrate your expectations accordingly. Neither the era nor the photographer need any explanation/justification: expect to discover cool things.
Horst H. Baumann – Lichtjahre / Light Years
Once internationally renowned, Baumann is remembered, if at all, mostly for his pioneering work with lasers and light sculpture. But once upon a time, if only for a mere five years, he turned his artistic mind to motorsports photography, and was among the first to do it in color.
Junkyard Nights: Haunting NorCal’s Automotive Graveyards
by Troy Paiva
A night at the graveyard, what’s not to . . . love? This light painting photographer has been lighting up the night for over 30 years and published several books showcasing his observations.
