Photographs by Jesse Alexander

David Bull Publishing 2008

I've been a big fan of Jesse Alexanders photographs for quite a while and his new book lives up to his reputation as one of the great motorsport photographers. This book covers many subjects from Fangio in 1958 through to Jackie Stewart in 1971 and even Dennis Jenkinson in 1987.
It's slim but in a large format with high quality paper and binding. The standard of photography is fabulous and the layout, with large photos makes them very striking. My only criticism would be that the layout is slightly random with no real narrative, but even so a great companion to Driven his previous title.

Another hit from David Bull publishing and Horton Books have some signed copies if you're quick.
