5.0 out of 5 stars Need more stars in Rating System 17 Dec 2003
I eagerly awaited arrival of this tome as this period is one of the most fascinating in F1. Tubes with engines stuck on the back disappeared as aerodynamics were discovered, if not completely understood until the end of the decade. Everyone had their own approach and the cars looked different - so unlike today.
This book includes some of the most brilliant and insightful photographs of the Grand Prix world that I have ever seen. A large number of such books are 99% cars during a race and while this book has its fair share of these shots, it also contains more interesting ones of the people that make the F1 world happen. These are interesting because they show more of the personality of the competitors than simply a driver in a helmet.
It is also of particular interest to see the share of time given to "lesser" teams of the times - if any can be called that. Certainly my fear was that the book would focus each year on the main participants but this was not the case. The inclusion of such minnows was gratifying and rounded out each year.
There are some years when entire teams seem to be missing. As a Williams fan of nearly 30 years I had hoped for more photographs of the team in the period between 1971 and 1977 but, as explained in the introduction, not all races were attended and there are other teams as well. Still looking for decent photos of the Politoys FX-3 and other early Williams cars, but this book has at least provided me with several excellent representations of some of the cars.
Against this very personal (and biased) aspect is the fact that the book contains excellent shots of new drivers each year. As an example, very few books of this stature would include shots of Alan Jones in the Harry Stiller Hesketh or Embassy Hill from 75 and 76.

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb book 2 July 2007
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this book on the strength of the review by doliver74 and i'm delighted with it. This has to be the best period in formula 1 for sheer innovation and style with some great drivers. In addition to the photographs and captioning there is a brief write up for each year. At the end of each year there is a page showing the teams, drivers and results. Buy and enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Marvellous Book 31 Dec 2010
This is a marvellous book. The images selected create a stimulating combination of cars and drivers and tracks and related ephemera. It's a broad view and better for that. Great shots here of heroes forever and technology that couldn't succeed.
Most of all, the text matches the images for illumination, warmth, and sheer humanity. Brilliant.

3.0 out of 5 stars Formula 1 in Camera 1970-79 10 April 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Very expensive book and arrived slightly dented at the corners. I was a bit disappointed with the print quality as well - couple of pages have blobs on them. The content is what you would expect from the product information and reviews and if you enjoy F1 nostalgia then you will enjoy the book although I might have been better off seeking out the 1970s editions of Autocourse.

5.0 out of 5 stars Formula 1 in Camera 1970 - 1979 Volume 2 23 Mar 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Excellent photographs from an era when motor racing was at its best - the days when, if you shut your eyes and a car approached you could name the specific engine manufacturer. Super call back the past feel ...

Another brilliant book in the series, Excellent photographs and well written texts,

Perfect for a trip into Formula 1 from the seventies, ( I remember I was there.) if you like F1, you won't be disappointed with this second volume, a perfect companion for Vol 1. Well worth the money. Lets have a book from the nineties and noughties too.
