What The Press Say

You don't have to be a Lotus fanatic to appreciate this comprehensive book about Lotus memorabilia, but it would help. Every one of the 256 pages is covered with a thoughtfully arranged scattering of pictures showing the huge and sometimes bizarre variety of Lotus related items that enthusiasts will covet. The material goes back as far as a tankard awarded to Colin Chapman for his success in the 1950 Gravesend Speed Trial. In between, trophies, brochures, adverts, company letters, models, press cuttings, a jigsaw, a workshop manual and even a model car give an indication of the diversity presented on these pages. The pictures are supported by running copy giving the history of the company and the cars that the memorabilia relates to. It's an interesting book to dip into especially for Lotus enthusiasts.
