The book contains over seventy computer-generated graphic compositions of evocative racing car liveries, each of which is supported by a related quote or anecdote from a legend of the motor racing world.
A well-known artist specialising in racing car subjects, the late Simon Owen’s detailed, expertly executed work conveys the life, the vibrancy, the essence and passion of motorsports and racing cars, like no other. Simon’s work is a visual feast for lovers of automotive art and motorsport. Over the last few years, Simon had worked on developing a series of stunningly detailed computer-generated digital images, focussing on individual racing cars and their liveries. Seventy-seven of these images have been compiled to create this extraordinary book, and each is presented with a relevant quote from a legend of the motor racing world. Along with these beautiful and unique artworks, this book represents a chance to gain a rare peek into the artist’s working methods, revealing some of his developmental work and showing how the digital images were constructed.

“In many respects, it is a book, unlike many others. It is an individual, as all good books should be. It is quirky, eclectic, eccentric even, but in a world intent on reproducing that which has already been regurgitated I personally felt the need for something a bit more idiosyncratic, I can only hope that you agree!” – Simon Owen
