Mercedes-Benz – SLK R171 series

This book reveals the full history of the second generation Mercedes-Benz SLK, covering in detail the German, US, UK, Australian and Japanese markets. The perfect book to grace a Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts’ library shelf, it’s the definitive record of the model illustrated with stunning photographs.

Mercedes-Benz – SLK R171 series was published by Veloce Publishing in November 2015, as a continuation of a series of Mercedes-Benz titles author Brian Long had written for the company. I was given the task of laying out the entirety of the book. As an entry in a pre-existing series, it was necessary to keep to a consistent style that would not appear jarring to owners of the previous entries. This series had a particularly high amount of images throughout, and much of the challenge with the layout was in fitting the relevant images into a chapter without having it appear over-crowded.
