A Limited Edition of 1500 copies worldwide.
Each numbered copy signed by Sir Jackie Stewart
Foreword by His Serene Highness Albert II, Sovereign Prince of Monaco
'Beginning with some mementos from my shooting days in the Fifties, that were donated by my mother, my wife Helen carefully chronicled every last detail of my career up until my retirement as a racing driver in 1973. It is a truly intimate portrait that shows the real side of the sometimes unreal life that Helen and I were both leading at the time' - Sir Jackie Stewart
Throughout her husband's racing career, Helen Stewart kept a scrapbook of photographs, press clippings and memorabilia from the 3 time World Champion Jackie Stewart.
Over time, the scrapbook expanded to 17 volumes!
COLLAGE is a 208 page version of Helen Stewart's scrapbook, superbly reproduced with an English printer founded in 1845. Using the latest oxidising inks on premium, heavyweight, uncoated art paper, the book's pages are then bound by hand at an artisan bookbindery in Scotland.
Each book features gilded page edging and hand-tooled decorative work blocked in gold leaf. The robust leather half-binding is presented in a hand-crafted slipcase inspired by Sir Jackie's crash helmet. The case is finished with silk-laminated paper, gold-foiling and a Royal Stewart tartan band.
A complimentary DVD is included with each copy of COLLAGE. It includes a short video story by Lady Helen Stewart, an audio visual montage of friends and peers speaking about Sir Jackie and a music video for 'Fly Free' - a single written and recorded by Paul and Mark Stewart in their father's honor, featuring Eric Clapton.
