The Speedhunters Photography Book Is Here

Ladies, Gentlemen & Larry – I’m so very proud to announce that the first Speedhunters art book, entitled ‘A Year in Global Automotive Culture – Volume One’ is finally available to purchase from the Speedhunters online store. This 400 page behemoth accurately captures a year of Speedhunting from January 1st to December 31st 2011 and is like nothing you have ever seen before. Let me explain to you why …

It was a simple idea – we wanted to create a permanent record of Speedhunters in print, something that could be enjoyed by people for years to come as well as something we could all look back on.

It has taken us over two years to arrive at this moment, including the production of an ultra rare prototype entitled ‘Volume Zero’. What we have created is a book which displays every single Speedhunters shoot from 2011 – feature cars, spotlights, event coverage and some behind the scenes shots which have never been seen before. You can now experience what it’s like to live a year in Dino’s shoes, see each of Larry Chen’s shooting days and re-live every single Formula D competition day.

The concept of the book is actually quite simple – each Speedhunter would submit three photographs for every day they photographed in 2011. Rod would then whittle down those three images to one per photographer to be included in the book with the leftovers being used in the introductions for each month. What we ended up with is a remarkable piece which precisely demonstrates the breadth and scope of our work.

For example, on one particular day in 2011 Linhbergh was shooting a Motorwerks Meet in California, Dino was shooting an S15 feature in Nagano, Ross was in Malta covering a drift event, Larry was being deafened by a grid of IndyCars …

… and Jonathan was documenting the start of the 2011 Le Mans 24 Hours. Can anyone else match that for variety?

The actual task of piecing the book together was a journey in itself. Collecting hundreds of photographs from all of our contributors, sorting and captioning each one individually before preparing them for each layout. Every last detail was considered.

We decided early on that this was to be a photography book, rather than a design book. We wanted to display these marvellous photographs with little to no interference or distractions from other graphical elements. This concept of invisible design is much more difficult than you’d imagine. We designed custom grids to allow an accurate and regimental layout system – every border is the same measurement, the gap between images is identical on every page and even the type is set precisely. We left nothing to chance.

Some of my favourite spreads however, are the ones where we left the photographs do the talking.

Some of you may have been lucky enough to get an advanced preview of the book at select events earlier this year – needless to say the reactions so far have been overwhelmingly positive.

It’s even got the official Larry Chen Seal of Approval.

This book is not a promotional tool, it’s to celebrate the incredible diversity of automotive culture around the globe. It’s what Speedhunters was put on this planet to do.

The book showcases photographs from the world’s top automotive festivals, races, shows and meets including the Le Mans 24 Hours, Bonneville Speed Week, Tokyo Auto Salon, Gatebil, Formula D Irwindale, Pike’s Peak Hill Climb, European Rallycross, Goodwood, the Singapore Grand Prix and so many, many more.

What do the numbers look like? 12×10 inches softcover with a protective hard case weighing in at nearly 7 pounds, running to 400 pages with over 700 photographs from 14 photographers and an introduction from none other than the Norwegian Hammer himself, Fredric Aasbø.

Volume One is priced at USD$75 in our US store and GBP£50 in our UK/EU store. Considering the prototypes came in at many multiples of these prices, we’re very proud to somehow have increased the production quality of the book, whilst bringing the cost down as low as we can for you. It is worth bearing in mind that these books are quite heavy, so the shipping costs might be slightly more expensive than our other stock.

There is one small catch. We’ve only had 1500 copies printed, each one of which has been individually numbered but only 1,000 copies will be available for sale online or at events. You’ll need to be quick …

We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who was involved in this project, directly or in-directly, it wouldn’t have been possible without you!

PURCHASED :) can I have number 001?

2

Can we have a different shipping method? I don't need it to be here in "3-5 days", I'd rather not pay 18.14 £ just for shipping to Germany.

3

Just bought it together with T-shirt.
 
Can't wait to get them. Thank you!!!

4

Happy B-day to me.

5

 @FunctionFirst :>

6

 @Ake RT cool!

7

since these are limited edition, we have gone with a "signed for" courier method. This is the only way to fully ensure that you get your book.

8

 @benpopham Thank you! Let us know what you think when you get it!

9

Just odered it along with the keychain. The shipping is a tad hefty but it does weigh over 4kg so its understandable! There goes my 100€ but I´ll will be happy to get this decorating my newly reconstructed appartement´s living room coffe table! :)

Author10

 @FunctionFirst Happy birthday!

11

@PaddyMcGrathSH Just put an order in for one and a hoody. Man maths won out. Your photobox gallery looks like a good idea too btw.

12

@stephensmyth86 Cheers Stephen! I keep getting asked for prints but I'm too lazy to do it myself, this is the perfect solution!

13

Bought one also... I just can't wait to get it :D

14

@PaddyMcGrathSH Seems to be a good solution alright. I might place an order in the future. Spent enough today though ;)

15

 @mat88 let us know what you think!

16

phew! that was quite a wait! just ordered the book and the hold stumt t shirt.
however , would appreciate it if you guys would mention the time zone of your release next time round;
coz the release was mentioned as oct 4th, but its already oct 5th over here in Japan!

17

 @Kermo It's REALLY meaty... a very beautiful object. You will see!

18

 @azmedaj an international problem perhaps... 

19

I just placed an order. First time ordering via PayPal but the desire to obtain the book in immeasurable. Speedhunters, do not disappoint me. I will always place my loyalty here. :)   

20

 @Locksley Ng Much appreciated! If you are a regular reader of Speedhunters then you will absolutely love the book as its where the photos really come to life.

21

This is the kinda of thing you can't pass up...even for a broke student, gosh I didn't think I'd have the chance to get one!! 

22

Purchased ! 

Author23

 @rowan_h Thank you!

24

 @RodChong Bit the bullet.

25

 @PaddyMcGrathSH Now you'll have to reserve my spot in next years book ;) 

26

Thanks! You won't be disappointed...

27

 @PaddyMcGrathSH Thank you for making each and every book with your bare hands! I will wear white gloves while flipping through it at a rate of one page per 5 minutes.

28

 @PaddyMcGrathSH  @rowan_h Darn you Paddy.... I am thanking him!

29

 @Larry Chen  @PaddyMcGrathSH ahh shucks... And thank you Larry for taking such pretty pictures. I always wear a bib when I look at my copy.

30

I was amazed at how great this book came out. Beautiful.

Author31

 @RodChong  I thought you had to wear the bib because you were so old? It is a nice bib though ...

32

 @PaddyMcGrathSH  @RodChong 8P

33

congrats!

34

trying to purchase this guys but it just keeps bringing me back to the cart screen after i click proceed to checkout? any suggestions?

35

Ordered as soon as I saw this post.
Cost me 96€ with a keychain, I never put so much money on a book before, so I hope I will be satisfied (and I pray for my local TNT delivery guy to fuck up the order).
BTW, if this is the Volume One, what is supposed to be in the Volume 2 ? Year 2012, or a retrospective of your older photographies ?

36

Just made my order and got a lanyard to! This was to good of an offer to pass up! Cheers Speedhunters!

37

Mine is on the way and I cannot wait to sit down and look through it!

38

 @Chris Besset We have already finished the design of the second book interestingly.... You will need to wait and see!
 
Thanks for the support!

39

Also, I know this is an odd place to ask but I see you guys are monitoring this post so... How much interest do you guys typically have in a feature for a car that is in rough shape(read form over function) but has style, rarity, and a laundry list of modifications on its side?

40

Here's what I have to say. Speedhunters became my favorite website and its my home page. I HAVE NOT BEEN DISAPPOINTED with what you guys provide us! I have spent more money on the speedthunter clothes then i ever have and this book is not as bad as some of my textbooks, but i feel like you guys understand us. When i recieved my package the other day i was overwhemled on how amazing your products are!!! Not only that but your staff is some of the coolest people!!! I had to use my credit card to buy this book but i  already know just how beautiful it will be. 
 
Thank you Speedhunters!
Erik.

41

 @TheRobotCow thanks for the kind words Erik. Drop us a line when you get the book.

42

 @Speedyquest drop us a few snaps to featurethis@dev.speedhunters.com and we will take a look! Ratty cars car work if they are done with a certain flare...

43

Ordered mine. I'm hoping for a low number! Please make the online orders the lower numbers vs the 500 you have set aside! I think it's only fair since I and a few others have probably been pressing F5 for the last 24hrs! lol.
 
Hope to get this before Irwindale, I'd like to get you guys to pen my yearbook  ;)
 
Thanks for the great work guys,
Andrew

44

Dude?! Is it sound out already? I keep adding to cart and then it disappears....

45

 @baroman Hi Baroman, If you bring the book down during halftime Fredric Aasbo and Mad Mike will be in the booth to sign the book. 

46

 @Minhster let us know if you continue to have problems.

47

nvm, i lied, just got my purchase through! SIIIICK! I am excited! You guys should sign the first 100 copies or something... just saying...  =)

48

 @RodChong I actually want you guys to sign it. The creative team behind the product. Are Larry & MIke covering the event?

49

 @RodChong Thank you, I may do that. To be honest I'd feel pretty self conscious if I submitted pictures of it in its current state. I asked because I never plan on the car having a perfect paint job or body work but will get it to a point where I am proud of it. When I reach that point I will definitely submit something. You cannot imagine how happy I would be grace the pages of speedhunters website. 

50

 @baroman aha... well then you can get Mike Garrett, Larry Chen and myself. Miki Taka and Courtney day also appear in the book... I'll send Linhbergh an email to see if he can come down too :>
 
 

51

@PaddyMcGrathSH I think the website is under load. I can't seem to check out once I've added to cart. Hopefully, it hasn't sold out as yet.

52

 @baroman Sean Klingelhoefer's work won't appear until Volume2 BTW :>

53

Yahoo 2 on there way to Western Australia, I can finally get some sleep as its 2.30am over here haha can't wait for it to arrive!!   

54

 @RodChong Great, I'll try to find you guys during the event! Thank you.
Good to know about Sean. I'll alienate him, I blame you Rod. :X

55

 @Minhster I want to order the book but every time i try to finalize my purchase it throws out one of the items?? what am I doing wrong???

56

 @PaddyMcGrathSH Thank you! Thanks for making a great book, can't wait for it to land on my doorstep!

57
YerffoegTeggobNav

 @Minhster  I want to order the book + some stickers but every time i try to finalize my purchase it throws out one of the items?? what am I doing wrong???

58

 @baroman We will have a booth there as well as a Feature Car display... should be easy to find us.

59

 @GavinHost that's commitment!

60

Thank You to the Speedhunters team!!! I went to school like a zombie since I was up all night/morning waiting to order this book, when I came home this afternoon it was finally available for sale and I managed to get copy #874! Now I can sleep happy =D

61
YerffoegTeggobNav

 @Minhster Ok, it worked after all. I thought i was getting a heart attack : )

62

 @YerffoegTeggobNav  @Minhster The site sounds busy.

63

kwl!! i remember seeing some of these pictures in posts!!
 
i have a great idea for you guys...!!! POSTERS!!! i would happy buy some! around £5-10 a pop depending on size and you guys have so many pictures that are worthy! i could say good bye to wallpapers and say hello to "posterbomb"!!!

64

@phyodabomb it's under a bit of pressure but keep trying and it should go through!

65

$75 ?
 
to be honest, that's cheap as heck for something like this...
 
i would have expected more in the $195 range...
 
especially considering this is a limited edition of 1000
 
 
congrats guys!
it looks gorgeous!

66

dang, waited too long to check the site!! Ordered one, hoping for a low # :)

67

Man you guys suck. I was really wanting one of these but only 1000 copies and no spare funds at the moment means I am screwed. Damn it man!  Great to see you got it out there though.

68

Dayum, I was expecting 200GBP or something for this sensory overload of awesomeness and wasn't planning on buying it, but 50GBP was too tempting to leave it... It will be here this weekend, awesome!

78

Do I get free Copy if I was feature more than twice?  :)

79

Just ordered :)

80

FUUUU! Bank card expired! Should get new one tomorrow, please tell me there are still some books left.....

81

My wife just ordered me this for Christmas, avid speed hunters fan!! can't wait to read it!!...although I have to wait for Santa!!

82

Oh really want to buy :(.but i am student, Hope guys you gonna do that evry year. So maybe next time :)

83

Just purchased mine. I love that you guys made it a photography book.

84

Limited supply run is retarded.

85

One copy on the way to little old New Zealand. The shipping was the same price as the book but well worth it being a limited run. The FIRST book I have ever bought in my life :D Cant wait for it to arrive

86

Just purchased mine! Was in dilemma thinking to get one or not coz of the price...Now I cant wait for it to arrive!=D Thanks Speedhunters! 
Ps This is my first time commenting on speedhunters after all this years!

Can't wait to see this:)

89

Ha, so the first book you've ever bought was a picture book? How is it you're even writing a comment on the site?
 
 
Just kidding, ya sheep fucker. That Library card comes in handy right?

90

 @Jmayhem Its not retarded, it adds an exclusivity to the the product. Just like exotic cars, if there was unlimited supply and everyone could have one then its not nearly as sought after or special. I think a limited run is a great idea

91

surprised that it still hasnt sold out!

92

Thank god...... I thought i would miss out i just got 2 the postage is a killer to Australia but still excited to get it. :) I cant wait. 

93

Bought mine this morning! I'm also surprised this hasn't sold out quicker!

94

Fuck me its a hefty price when i converted it to nzd + shipping, still gonna buy it though

95

Fuck me its a hefty price, Shipping almost cost the same as the book... hmmmm

96

 @slip way the shipping is high until you enter your zip code. mine said $42 to ship but updated when I put in my zip code for the billing/shipping info.

97

Oh man.... can we buy this at FD Irwindale? I'd rather not have to pay for the shipping.

98

Were can we buy it?

101

102

@ClaytonPayton Its probably cause im in NZ

103

@ClaytonPayton I'd say its probably just because im in nz

104

@ClaytonPayton Depends where you live then i guess

105

@LouisYio If there are any left by then. The stock is going very quickly.

106

@ClaytonPayton Depends where you live then i guess, shippings still gonna cost me $60 regardless

107

@ClaytonPayton Depends on where you live i guess, shippings still gonna cost me $51

109

Shipping is killing me...

110

Hmm.. My PayPal account was empty. Have to wait till the money is on the account... 1-2 workdays :( :( :( :(.
Hope there is still some left by that time.

111

50 pounds to ship to Australia?! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, you're kidding right?!

It's a pretty heavy book so a signed for- courier to AUS does add up unfortunately.
 
We are looking into housing product in Australia in the future to fix this issue for future releases...

@sean klingelhoefer  @RodChong Could you look at having the US store deliver to AUS/NZ, our dollar is nearly matching (the Pound kills us with the conversion rates) plus its closer then europe. For us (aussies with europe pricing & shipping) its $80 a book, then another $80 to deliver it. So $160 from europe, when we could get it for $100 if we ran off the US site.
Like it only cost $50US to deliver a shoe box from DC Shoes to Aus, thats about the same size & weight if not heavier.
Food for thought I guess.

Next time, what about sending some in bulk over to Aus before official release, would make shipping so much more bearable. It was $151AU posted to Australia, certainly wouldn't have bought it for that price if it wasn't a Vol1, limited run thing.

@RodChong Hi Rod I had a question, i ordered a few books in two separate orders Order #1048 & #1052  i got an order received status for both of the sales and the the money has come of the accounts. But i haven't received an order Complete email. 
I sent a query to speedhunters@kleerfreight.com is that the correct email to request through?
Cheers :)

171

oooh ouch, the shipping to NZ is the same as the book!
 
...still bloody tempting tho...

172

@Andrew Walton Hi Andrew. That's right if you are ordering from the UK store. Let me know if everything gets sorted.

173

@RodChong Hi Rod, thanks i revived the order complete emails last night. I can't wait to get the book. It look like such an awesome product. :)

174

Just ordered - looking forward to receiving this book. Thanks!

175

I can't believe this book isn't sold out yet, I thought it would be a wrap on the first day.

176

It's now sold out in the UK shop.

@RodChong  @mat88 Mine has just arrived, no 1109, great book, impressive photography, nice display idea, I just wished the photos/book were bigger in size... But overall it really does show the global automotive culture... Impressive...

179

I have just received mine, awesome, thanks speedhunters !

180

@RodChong
Hi Rod. I have received my copy of the book but unfortunately it's has a default with the outer hard case. It's ripped in one place and not joined correctly in another, almost like the card inside is not straight or something. I have emailed kleerfrieght and am waiting for a response but it looks like now the book has sold out? Any ideas what to do?
Cheers
Ian

181

@RodChong so that is ther reason why uk store hasn't replied to me all this time from last thursday? 
 
so there is no chance that I will get my book? :@

182

@S15_Ian  @RodChong Hi Ian don't worry we have saved a few copies for cases just like yours. It won't be an issue to replace the damaged book with a new one. Kleerfreight should be able to sort you out.

183

did you have an issue completing with your order?
 
There are still some copies in the US story BTW.... The last copies are selling fast though.

184

@RodChong  @S15_Ian  Thanks for the reply bud! feel better now! Congrats on producing an amazing book to!

Daamn...Odered mine within the first 10 minutes when it got available on thursday . Hoped to get a odered complete email the next day, like I did with odering the SH hoodie. But I did not get and it made me think, do people not work on fridays in the UK? Got the oder complete email late monday but by that time I had already departed for work duty for 2 weeks. So I will not see the book until 1,5 weeks...Suuuuuuuucks. Really wanted to get it before I left! Just out of curiosity Rod, dont the people work at kleerfreight  on fridays?

@Kermo Hi Kermo. More a case that they were overloaded with orders. They have had a pretty hectic time keeping up with the overwhelming response to the Speedhunters book!

Hi Guys!
I've just received my copy here in Poland- it's a piece of outstanding craftsmenship. It's simply amazing. Your passion evaporates from this pages!! Thank you.
 
I'm curious what was the most surprising or unexpected country that order come from?

@RodChong I feel ashamed now Rod. I should have figured that out myself. Lol. But thank you for responding :)

204

I saw it was sold out the same day I had the money for it. Ordered it from the publishers site (stand and speed). Is this where the other 500 books went? Just curious of my chances of still getting one or if I should be expecting a paypal refund instead.

209

Just received my copy and its smashed. The flat rate shipping box it came in was also smashed and the book wasn't wrapped in anything at all? Shipment from California to Seattle shouldn't be this big of a problem :( I emailed you guys about it! I hope there are replacements for situations like this.

215

I was late to the party, but I placed my order here:
US Customers: http://stanceandspeed.com/?wpsc-product=speedhunters-volume-one
Int'l Customers: http://stanceandspeed.com/?wpsc-product=speedhunters-volume-one-duplicate

216

I received my book today and it is smashed as well. It only traveled 25 miles from san mateo to the east bay and a whole corner of the box is ripped off and the actual cover of the book is bent. The box was far too large and there was zero packaging inside. Super bummed!

217

Hi Trevor. This is terrible news. We are investigating now with our shipping company what is going wrong here with our process.
 
We will definitely replace your copy what ever the case.

218

@ho11and We will fix this. Please let us know what they say.

219

@TheR1ckster The book is sold out on Speedhunters.com but Stanceandspeed still have a few copies left.

220

Hi there. Are you based in the USA?

221

@S15_Ian Are you all sorted there now?

222

ok or still nothing?

223

Got mine today from stance and speed. :) It was actually packed really well, Had extra paper around it to keep it from moving. Everyone order up the stance and speeds if you didn't get one from here!

224

@RodChong Thanks for asking Rod, i was contacted and offered a replacement. But  after realising it was going to cost me an additional £10 to ship the damaged book back i decided to live with the damage. 
 
Looking forward to Vol.2 !

Got it through looks amasing. But some of the pages are half blank and it even has full blank pages in the middle of the book. Has it been designed like that or is it a mishap?

236

@suckmy_nick you should contact the customer service email which you can find in the relevant UK or US store. They will help you.

237

@Kermo that is part of the design yes. Called "Negative Space".... :>
