Grand Prix Ford

In 1965, Colin Chapman persuaded Ford to underwrite development of a V8 for the new 3000cc Grand Prix formula. Built by Cosworth, the new DFV engine won Lotus four World Championship Grands Prix in 1967. A year later, and now available to other constructors, the engine began its domination of Grand Prix racing.

Released by Veloce Publishing in October 2015, Grand Prix Ford was the first print book I was tasked with creating the layout for. It was necessary for the book to match in visual style and tone to Grand Prix Ferrari, a previous title from Veloce Publishing, and special attention was paid to create the impression of a high-quality coffee table book.
