|Art Book Limited: Ayrton Senna, by Bernard Bakalian|
|© 2015 PAB, exclusively limited to 50 volumes|
Renowned photographer Bernard Bakalian presents a new collection of Art Book Limited photo albums bound in genuine Italian leather in the memory of the late three-time Formula 1 World Champion, Ayrton Senna.
Available in a very limited 50 copies per collection, this title is illustrated with the images Bakalian captured during the 213 F1 Grands Prix he has covered since 1980. His first book is dedicated to Ayrton Senna – a second is being published shortly on Alain Prost – whose death on 1 May 1994 following an accident during the San Marino Grand Prix at Imola shocked the world.
This is a book with little editorial or text, where the priority is given to telling Senna’s emotive, compelling story through pictures, many unpublished before now, in a semi-chronological order.
The book carries an exclusive preface from Senna’s greatest on-track rival, the four-time Formula One World Champion, Alain Prost. His words open this never before seen collection of photos taken by Bakalian, beginning with Senna’s F3 Grand Prix of Macao in 1983, right through to his final year at McLaren in 1993.
Each copy of the collection is uniquely numbered and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity, the handwritten dedication of the photographer to confirm that these exceptional, virtually unobtainable albums will become parts of a collection and grow in value over time.
Each album is manufactured on request and bound in genuine Nappa-quality Italian leather before being shipped directly to the buyer in a black briefcase.
These albums are limited and priced – at a considerable €1,600 + postage apiece – for the esteemed Senna collector, and are available for purchase by contacting PAB.
