Everyone remembers the book ‘Porsche Plakate’ by Jürgen Lewandowski, published in 1984 and no longer available since a long time. This book was considered as the source for any Porsche Poster collector.
Now the new edition of this book has been published by Delius–Klasing, a german publisher.
As soon as in 1951 the first posters , designed by graphical artist Erich Strenger, were printed to celebrate class victory in the 24h of Le Mans race.
In 6 chapters, this book tells the story of Porsches strong tradition of publishing Posters to celebrate race-victories and special-events. Porsche posters became real collectors-items, and value is raising each day, especially for the early ones.
Chapter 1 : 1951 – 1959 The beginning of the Legend
Chapter 2 : 1960 – 1969 The overall victories get closer and closer
Chapter 3 : 1970 – 1979 This much horsepower was never seen again
Chapter 4 : 1980 – 1989 With the Porsche 956, Porsche is practically unbeatable
Chapter 5 : 1990 – 1999 The 911 victorious on every track, even at Le Mans
Chapter 6 : 2000 – now Porsche conquers the USA with the RS Spyder
Looks like this book will be a hit for Xmas and New year gifts for any Porsche lover.
