Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars by Brooklands New Media Ltd.
Softcover 300 x 420 mm, 80 pages, lavishly illustrated (colour and mono photos), published 2004This is a Special Commemorative Edition, clearly different from the rich crop of R-R Centenary publications in 2004. The purpose of this book should be considered against the background of what this publisher does. Brooklands New Media Group is a publishing house that specialised in high-quality publications for industries and corporate customers etc. Independent and client-supported publications are produced, quite a few are specific corporate projects for ‘Global Players’. Thus is explained why “Celebrating the 100th Year Anniversary of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars” is comparable more to a premier lifestyle magazine than to a book in the true sense of the word and that this publication includes 3rd party advertising. The story of Rolls-Royce is covered from the very beginning to an outlook on future developments. Added are highlights (the mascot, the art of coachbuilding, etc.) which fall in roughly though not seamless chronological order. The large oversize landscape format (30x42cm or 16 1/5" x11 3/4") and an expensive 5-colour process result in excellent photo reproduction. The Rolls-Royce Phantom made at Goodwood, features prominently.
