Special limited edition classic car books

Special Limited Edition Books

For a number of our titles we have produced a special limited edition. These are generally bound in leather and each comes with a hand-crafted cloth-covered slipcase. Special printed end papers and gilded page edges complete the special treatment, although each title in the 'Great Cars' series also carries an embossed reproduction of the chassis number on the front cover.

Each book is hand bound by Ludlow Bookbinders, a local team of craftspeople. 

At Porter Press we pride ourselves on the high quality of all our books. It is a given that you can rely on a superb standard of writing, design and print across the board. Yet these limited editions take quality even further. With a truly beautiful finish and exquisite attention to detail, these special limited editions are ideal for the motoring enthusiast and book collector alike.
