The Aston Martin Book First Edition 2014
Very British, indeed
The traditional British brand should not be missing from the successful series of opulent car books in the teNeues style. On the occasion of James Bond's 50th anniversary in 2012, two icons who embody British coolness like hardly anything else met: For Skyfall, the agent series returned to its automotive origins. Accordingly, Daniel Craig drove an Aston Martin DB5 as Agent 007. The same exciting six-cylinder that Sean Connery was seen at the wheel of in Goldfinger. In the meantime, Aston Martin has also celebrated a milestone birthday.
In the century since it was founded by Robert Bamford and Lionel Martin on January 13, 1913, a portfolio has emerged ranging from the Le Mans-winning DB2 to the 2013 Vanquish. René Staud appropriately photographed these elegant luxury cars.
As with his bestsellers about the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL and the Porsche 911, he creates an almost sensual experience with his photographs.
