Stars & Sportscars: Gentleman-Racer Jetset Rennsport-Adel. Photos by Marianne Furstin zu Sayn_Wittgestein. German and english text.\

Marianne, Princess Sayn-Wittgenstein-Sayn seized photographic moments and let her camera talk, with a perfect knowledge of the right composition. The result: over-sized racing photographs from the 1950s, 60s and 70s, building both a report and contemporary document at the same time. After an exciting interview with the Princess about photography, the book showcases previously unseen insights from the greatest racetracks in the world – from Nurburgring to Spa, from Monza to the Mille Miglia – as well as the famous people that populate them. This opulent coffee table book ends with a very personal view of the Princess from her son Prince Peter Sayn-Wittgenstein-Sayn. Text in English and German. AUTHOR: Princess Marianne of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Sayn was born in 1919 in Salzburg as the daughter of Baron Mayr-Melnhof and his wife Countess Maria Anna of Meran. Having been given her first camera in 1928, she was seized with a fascination with photography that has stayed with her for all of her life. A permanent collection of over 100,000 of her photographs has been established in Salzberg. 130 colour
