A Darracq Called Genevieve

The life and times of the world’s most famous veteran car

Genevieve is the first definitive, documented, ownership history and cinematic record of the 1904 French Darracq motorcar. This car was propelled to international fame as Genevieve, in the record breaking 1953 film that centred around the annual London to Brighton run for veteran cars pre-1905.

A Darracq Called Genevieve was published by Veloce in November 2016. This was the first book with Veloce where I was tasked with bringing the entire book together myself from the provided manuscript and image files. As a result, I was responsible for editing the text, processing all the provided images for print, designing and implementing the layout, and creating a jacket design from scratch.
