Much more than a simple calendar, this wall book gives a real insight into the WRC event, combining beautiful imagery with 'behind the scenes’ stories told by the team, from board members to chief mechanics. Héléna El Mokni provides photographs for each month, capturing a dynamic moment in the featured race.
I was asked to draw a set of 13 maps of the season's rallies to be printed on overlay sheets. These line drawings, titles and map keys were fitted around the focal point of the photography, half-seen through the translucent paper. The hand-crafted maps add to the deluxe quality of the book with loose line work specifically developed to reflect the excitement and energy of the event.
This large format, much-coveted wall book (some signed by the Polo driver crews) is a limited edition and has been very well received by Volkswagen sponsors, employees and members of the motorsport industry.
