"As a writer who's frequently lost in wonder at the talent (and patience) of photographers, the final chapter on how Leffingwell's "light-painting" shots were made is as fascinating as staring at the cockpit details of a '63 Stingray." - "Racer.com / Sports Car Club of America"

'the photographs are stunning, with exceptional detail. There are lots of Corvette books, but this one is superb.'
'Holding this massive hardback rammed with stunning photography on drool-proof pages is a real experiencea? definitely worth adding to the list.a

I have The regular version and the Limited Edition #482 of 500 from Amazon.The Limited has a different cover also a Art Print,limited to 500 copies and signed by the author and comes in a elegant Slipcase,It comes with a Print that you can frame it comes inside the book,the book inside itself is a red hardcover for the Art of The Corvette Limited,and the slipcase is HUGE,it is what is pictured for the limited on Amazon and elsewhere which is the Blue 67' Roadster Lights up,the non-Limited comes Hardcover with Dustjacket and blue 66' Roadster on cover.
As for the "Regular" edition,regular or non-limited it is still a great book,beautiful photography as Usual The Author does not disappoint with his writing and Photography,Although there are no Racers which I believe should merit a Book of its Own Art of The Corvette Racer,I recall pitching "Art Of The Corvette" when I started to see all the "Art of" Transport Books so I am glad my recommendation or call it luck was taken into consideration. There is no C6 Grand Sport in here,and the C6/C7 Section is short However the different cars featured Including Zora Arkus-Duntov' Personal 63' Z06 Big Tank Coupe and 89'Corvette Roadster(Hardtop). There is so much in here that is beautiful I have to keep going back and appreciate it more just in awe.
Along with the numerous illustrations there are also informative textual explanations of the various Corvettes that are being depicted. The book would be a welcome addition to any Corvette lover’s library.
