Vintage Auto Racing Posters

Fine Art Auto Racing Posters

The artworks in this book show the history of the car from its creation up until the start of the 1970s. The posters have been chosen for their importance, rarity, beauty and innovation, as well as for what they represent in terms of significant historical, technical and artistic stages of the motor car. They showcase the work of the designers and illustrators who constantly strove to come up with new ideas and styles to match the technological progress of famous names such as Peugeot, Mercedes Daimler, Renault, Citröen, Bugatti, Buick, Fiat, Rolls Royce and Chrysler, as well as others that are less well-known nowadays.

It was not just the cars that changed during this time; the illustrative styles did too. The work of artists such as Berhard, de Valério, Cappiello, Cassandre, Chéret, Ernst, Falucci, Gaudy, Grün, Hohlwein, McKnight Kauffer, Pal, Privat-Livemont and Rochegrosse shows the important variety of styles used by illustrators in this era and brings the wonderful cars and races to life in vivid color.

Graham Hill, (mid 1960s?). Hill crouches down alongside a racing car, talking to the driver. Graham Hill was one of the first Formula 1 drivers to become a television personality as well as a racing star. He made his debut at Monaco in 1958 and went on to win 14 Grands Prix, and was World Champion in 1962 and 1968. He joined Jim Clark at Team Lotus in 1967, and in 1969 won his last Grand Prix - his fifth triumph at Monaco. He broke both legs when he was flung from his car in the United States Grand Prix, and was killed in a plane crash in 1975 with five other members of his Embassy Hill team.

Damon Hill in his Williams-Renault, 1993. As the son of one of the legends of motor racing, Damon Hill had much to live up to when he decided to pursue a career in the sport. Having gained his first experience of Formula 1 with a few races with Brabham whilst working as a test driver with Williams in 1992, he graduated to the Williams racing team proper in 1993. He was immediately successful, helped by an excellent car, and achieved his first win in Hungary, immediately following it up with two more, at Spa and Monza. After coming close in 1994, he finally emulated his father Graham by becoming World Champion in 1996, winning six of the first nine Grands Prix of the season. His performances in the second half of the season were perceived as less impressive and he was controversially dropped from the team. The rest of his career was spent with less competitive cars, although he did secure the Jordan team's first Grand Prix victory in Belgium in 1998.
