Item description for Michael By Michel by Michel Comte...
In case you didn't know, German ace Michael Schumacher is arguably the world's best racing driver ever. In 1995, he became the youngest double Formula 1 World Champion. He is also the 2000, 2001, 2002, and 2003 World Champion. At the time of printing, the 34-year-old Ferrari racer needs just one more point to claim an unprecedented sixth Formula One title, eclipsing the record of five crowns he currently shares with Argentinean legend Juan Manuel Fangio. Schumacher is also the highest paid racing driver in the world, reputedly earning more than a hundred million a year with endorsements. Michael by Michel is an intimate photographic portrait of the greatest racing driver in history by a modern master of photography. With unrivalled access to Michael Schumacher both at work and at home, Michel Comte built up an archive of photographs of the Formula One World Champion over the past eight years. A frank portrait of the man who has broken every record in Grand Prix racing history, Michael By Michel tells the story of an elite sportsman who shies away from the glare of constant publicity, and of the family man who cherishes his time at home more than anything. Published in a limited edition of 777 copies, this sumptuously printed, case-bound book is an exquisite object for the collector interested in fine books, Formula One racing, and the photographic work of Michel Comte.
