Another beautifully rendered book from Daniel Simon, The Timeless Racer has some really convincing images that are almost indistinguishable from photographs, and a very real sense of alternate history and story with the book documenting a fictional 'time travelling' plot using virtual reality to explain the racing career that lasts over a hundred years. That said, the special edition is only really a thick cardboard sleeve for the regular version of the book so it is probably not worth shelling out double the price for a sleeve. I was slightly disappointed not to have an art print or any other extra goodies. Buy the regular version and you will not be disappointed. A must for any sci-fi fan or cg artist looking for inspiration.
Im a massive fan of Daniels. He's an incredible visionary. I am always amazed how people are so creative. His phenomenal work on Tron and Oblivion is there to be marveled and looked on as beautiful functional machines. It's not just that they have been created, it's the attention to detail. Everything on them has a purpose, is there for a reason. He is a true artist in every sense of the word. I have Cosmic Motors, one of my prize possessions. Now, to join this very small exclusive club is The Timeless Racer. Another beautiful book. It's the first in hopefully a few. And leaves u wanting so much more as it teases u with what's to come in another wondeful universe. My only regret is I didn't get the ultimate book. But this is an absolute thing of beauty and shall be treasured as such Thankyou Daniel. Brilliant
