Through the Eyes of Formula 1: A unique book of photos taken by drivers
Wednesday 14 November 2012
Zoom: Through the Eyes of Formula 1, is first ever book of photographs taken by the stars of a sport.
The book contains photographs which were taken by every Formula One driver and team boss and were sold in aid of London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.
Michael Schumacher’s view (pictured) from the driving seat of his Mercedes was the most sought after photograph and fetched £2,500 under the hammer. The seven-time world champion said: “I am delighted that my ‘the office’ photograph fetched so much for this very worthwhile cause. The image encapsulates F1 for me; the cockpit is where I feel completely at home and everything else is second nature. Great Ormond Street Children’s Charity has a strong link to our sport and I was glad to be able to support them through the Zoom auction.”
The 104-page hardback book is published by Dennis. The standard edition will retail at £20, but for the most discerning F1 collectors there is also a limited edition of just 250 copies, with a leather cover and slipcase, priced at £75. Zoom is an innovative new charity project in aid of the renowned Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity. To buy the book visit shop.instant-shop.com
