History: This publication was a labour of love by the Author Tony Loxley a full time NSW Police Officer and the team at Printciple Source, 3 years in the making.

We really wanted this book to be a reflection of the amazing motor racing and the personalities that existed at the time. The contribution from drivers, photographers and people who were there is outstanding, 500 pages over a thousand photos, some never seen before, stories first hand from drivers, forewords from the late Sir Jack Brabham also Warwick Brown stories from the late New Zealand reporter Eoin Young.

Description: Having the flexibility to do what we wanted, to make this book a real treasure for all collectors of fine books.

This publication is Landscape A4 Hard Cover with a Dust Jacket, Cover Case & Dust Jacket printed 4 colour 200gsm Gloss Art with Matt Lamination and Spot Gloss UV & Gold Foil, there is a great photo of the Gold Cup in the centre of the cover, so to make it stand out we used a Spot Gloss UV making it really look gold and this matched the Gold Foil used for the Title: Tasman Cup 1964 -1975.

Text: 500 pages printed 4 colour on 157gsm Gloss Art, with this book being a history of Motor Sport Racing, pictures are a major component of the book and with over 1,000 photos, split 50/50 between colour and black and white, supplied by many different photographers and varying degrees of quality, the Author and our designer spent 100’s of hours improving the quality and getting a balance. With the B&W Photos we changed them to grey scale to improve clarity.

The Binding we went for a Square Spine, with Head and Tail Band’s and a Page Ribbon, with a Dust Jacket attached.
