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.
