Bill Pack is an award-winning photographer based in Atlanta, Georgia, with a lifelong love of automotive design. Car enthusiasts and collectors around the world know Pack’s images for their elegant feel, strong graphic lines and ability to capture the unique behavior of light as it moves across a car’s form.
This is the inaugural collection of Bill Pack’s car images, curated into a coffee table book to be shared with all those who love design, cars and the art of photography.
There are many exceptional automotive photographers in the world. I’m privileged to know a few. But it’s a rare thing when a photographer creates a look that is immediately identifiable as his own. A look that is without a doubt, art. Bill Pack has done that. The first time I saw his work it stopped me in my tracks. And now we have the opportunity to hold it in our hands as a book. Treat yourself. ~ Dwight Knowlton—Author, illustrator, and founder of Carpe Viam
About the book
The book has been designed to showcase the rich, black high-contrast images through the use of the 12”x12” square format that lends itself to wide dramatic images as they expand across the spread. The full-page crops accentuate each image’s beauty, emotion, and detail. The pagination flow of single and double page images has been intentional to maintain the reader’s interest while exploring the book. Bare white pages are used as a visual respite from the various spread images and also to highlight single-page images. White borders are interspersed in the layout to add a luxurious feel and more visual variety.
The hardcover 172-page book is sewn-bound with an exposed spine that reflects and highlights the craftsmanship and stitching details of classic cars. This sewn binding allows the book to lay perfectly flat for the best viewing of the images and layout. Covers have a tactile quality with debossed detailing that adds to the luxurious lay flat handling experience and a limited quantity of books has a leather-wrapped slipcase that also features the debossed detailing matching the book’s covers.
The book itself is a work of art. Designed by Lionel Ferreira of Ferreira Design Company. It is something you want to hold for the tactile experience which enhances the viewing pleasure.
