More interesting style news from Bamford. Their appreciation for men’s style extends beyond ecologically aware clothes and custom-made Rolexes (we wrote about them here) to the great marques of luxury automobiles.
Bamford are the exclusive retailers of the limited edition of Gunther Raupp’s “Ferrari 25 Years of Calendar Images”. Gunther Raupp is the photographer of luxury cars, none more so than Ferrari. Raupp first approached Enzo Ferrari with his photography over a quarter of a century ago and Enzo Ferrari was so impressed that he made Raupp the official photographer of the Ferrari calendar. Raupp is also a certified Ferrari aficionado and owns Ferraris.
Bamford are a natural fit with Ferrari and selling this collectors presentation edition of Raupp’s photographs shows how broad and worldly Bamford’s style is. The photographs are of course beautiful and beautifully presented by TeNeues (the publisher) in a luxurious heavy photographic paper with a stitched binding. There are 219 colour plates, along with technical details of each car featured. The foreword is by Piero Ferrari (Enzo’s son) and is of course endorsed by Ferrari. Each of the fifty copies comes with a signed, numbered photoprint, which is stamped with the Ferrari seal. The limited edition is priced at £1,600.00. To complement the launch there is also an exhibition of the original photographs in the Ferrari Gallery (Maranello, Italy) until the 9th of March.
Bamford are selling the collectors edition of “Ferrari 25 Years of Calendar Images” at their flagship store in London’s Sloane Square. The full address is Bamford and Sons, 31 Sloane Square, London, SWI, tel 020 7881 8010. For further information on Bamford their website is here. With only fifty copies for sale, I suggest you go and view this book, it is a truly stylish presentation of one of the greatest automobile marques in Europe.
