The Racers; Hardcover-Box set, (2012); by Al Satterwhite (Artist, Author, Photographer), Dan Davis (Foreword)
The 1960s and 1970s was a magical era of innovation and endurance at Sebring and Daytona race tracks. Al Satterwhite's unprecedented collection of images of the races, the cars, the drivers and behind-the-scenes poignant moments are available in his latest fine art collector edition book, "the Racers". The exquisite 98-page layout is a must-have limited-edition for serious racing collectors. It's a limited edition of 100 books using the new 'lay-flat' technology that makes the many 2-page spreads look fantastic with no gutter to ruin the viewing experience. It comes in a custom laser-etched black aluminum box with (2) 8x10 archival prints; the book and the prints are all numbered and signed. To quote Automobile magazine, "Satterwhite has put together the nicest album you'll ever see. A lay-flat spine and quality printing make each photo book look as if it just came out of the darkroom. The book is pricey, but there are only 100 of them + the copy in the Library of Congress." Victory Lane magazine said, "The autographed art book is 98 pages on card stock of stunning photos, some double-page laid out like a scrap book. It is a stunning depiction of 'decisive moments' during the 1963~1973 golden age at the Daytona 24 Hour and Sebring 12 Hour races." If you love endurance motor racing, this is the book for you.
