About the Book
In this publication Lara takes a small car & drives a long way. Her account is based upon records from woman drivers in the 1920's & encompasses some of her favourites: Route Napolean & 'Col de Perty', arriving in Monaco to watch the 8th Historic Grand Prix.
The story of the road trip continues homewards to England.
Lara Platman is an award winning photographer & writer specialising in life's eccentricities. Her first book 'Art Workers Guild 125 Years' (Unicorn Press 2009) looks at 130 craftsmen in their working environments. This publication enjoys some of the country's hidden living national treasures. Lara's second book 'Harris Tweed from land to street' (Frances Lincoln 2011), celebrates the making of the historic cloth in its 100th year. Spending seven months in the outer Hebrides, Lara has witnessed the manufacturing of the cloth from fleece to suit. Lara's third book is called 'Spirit of Land , the distilleries of Scotland' (Frances Lincoln 2015). Lara has published two books with Blurb, with more of a personal, scrapbook, diary feel to them. She hopes you enjoy discovering a little part of her enjoyment of photography.
