Formula 1: The Impossible Collection
All prices include VAT
Part of Assouline’s special series, The Ultimate Collection, which is an homage to the art of luxury bookmaking. Books in the collection are hand-bound using traditional techniques, with color plates hand-tipped on art-quality paper; each page of this limited-edition series bears the unique imprint of the artisan. Complimentary white gloves and signature canvas tote bag are included with each purchase from Assouline’s Ultimate Collection.
This handcrafted volume is stored in a luxury clamshell case with metal plaque. Selected by veteran F1 journalist Brad Spurgeon, Formula 1: The Impossible Collection chronicles the milestones that lifted Formula One from a gentlemen’s club in 1950 to a global sport with hundreds of millions of fans around the world, third in popularity only to the Olympics and World Cup soccer.
Highlighting exceptional technical innovations, remarkable drivers’ achievements and exciting race finishes, this volume is a spirited tribute to the sport and all those who have made it possible over the decades. Dynamically illustrating that Formula One is far more than “cars going around in circles,” it is the culmination of a passion that fires the mechanics, technicians, engineers, and team directors behind the scenes, in addition to the drivers themselves, who are prepared to possibly pay the ultimate sacrifice to be part of its glorious history.
