Over 50 years of motor-sport inspired Christmas cards

This edition, which is limited to just 50 copies, has the book and slipcase hand-bound in a Michael Turner classic painting printed on cloth. They are numbered and signed by Michael and Chas.
For over 50 years, renowned motor sport and aviation artist Michael Turner annually produced a set of paintings depicting stand-out moments from that year’s Formula One and sports car racing season.
The paintings were reproduced as a set of Christmas cards and made available through Michael’s own company, Studio 88, which he formed in 1963. Over the years, these cards became highly-collectable to the extent that, in 1992, Michael’s wife, Helen, formed a Collectors’ Club which quickly gained a worldwide membership. Now, for the first time, the entire collection of cards produced between 1960 and 2016 are published together in the book, ‘The Michael Turner Collection’, written by Chas Parker in conjunction with Michael.
Each card is reproduced on high-quality paper, together with its original caption, a brief synopsis of the event depicted, and Michael’s recollections of why he chose that particular subject and setting.
