If you’re a Formula One fan, then we have found the perfect coffee table book for you to either keep for yourself or to give as a gift. One Elite Formula is filled with stunning colour photography and innovative graphics that chronicle the 2019 FIA Formula One season which saw Lewis Hamilton take his sixth Driver’s Championship title, and putting him on target to be possibly one of the all-time greats in the pinnacle of motorsports.
One Elite Formula is an exclusive pictorial yearbook that takes the reader on a colourful tour of the 2019 Formula 1 season, through 21 new works by digital artist ‘MarkoF1’ and the help of stunning photographs by Xavier Gázquez, director of ‘Graining.es’.
This is one of the highest quality books we have seen, where superb photography is combined with the work of ‘MarkoF1’, whose creations of digital art around the theme of F1 is truly unique.
The pages themselves are not what you’d expect from a traditional book but rather made of a high-quality plastic material which will mean that there is less chance of it getting marked or damaged as people look through the pages. The book’s cover is also very resilient, made from metraquilato and has a fabric back cover.
Inside, One Elite Formula is made up of 100 pages with over 150 large-format images covering every race of the 2019 Formula One season in vivid colour, almost bringing each race to life.
Copies of One Elite Formula were presented to the Formula One teams during the second week of the 2020 pre-season testing at the Circuit of Barcelona-Catalonia.
Each artbook is hand crafted for the individual purchaser, much like a classic hand-built car, with each book being produced to order. Therefore the ‘just in time’ production schedule, means that generally speaking you can expect delivery of your book in the UK within 14 days, whilst worldwide delivery can be expected within 28 days.
One Elite Formula is priced at £750 and is delivered in its very own briefcase style presentation case for added protection. It is also worth noting that 25% of the book’s proceeds will go to charities.
