Porter Press International Ltd
Porter Press International was formed by award-winning motoring author, Philip Porter. Having written around 20 books for a variety of publishers from the smallest to the largest in the last 20 years, Porter launched PPI with the first Stirling Moss Scrapbook. The company now lists a dozen titles which include, apart from the Original Scrapbooks series, books with pre-eminent motoring artist Alan Fearnley and actor Douglas Wilmer's memoirs. The company prides itself on offering a few first class books rather going for quantity. Several titles and a new series of motoring books will be launched in the coming months. PPI has particularly close links with Sir Stirling as no less than four of its books feature the great man. Porter Press have also published, in conjunction with Octane, Stirling Moss, Britain's Greatest Racing Driver in celebration of Sir Stirling's 80th.
Original Scrapbooks series
When Philip Porter, the author, discovered that Sir Stirling had a remarkable collection of period scrapbooks, charting his remarkable career, he suggested they would make fantastic books. “Stirling said he thought I was crazy, but OK,” recalls Philip with a smile.
“We launched with one celebrating 1955, because it was a remarkable year for our hero and the 50th anniversary. It was received extremely well and something very different. The next one was devoted to another amazing season – 1961. Meanwhile, Bette Hill, widow of Graham and mother of Damon, contacted me to say she had scrapbooks. This was the next title. I then did one on Jaguars, about which I have written rather a lot of books, Mike Gould wrote one for us on Land Rovers, Glen Smale did one on Porsche 911s and I completed one with the great Murray Walker. We covered Stirling's early years with the Stirling Moss Scrapbook 1929–54, and have just completed the set by launching one majoring on 1956-60.”
Each Scrapbook is available in a standard edition and also a limited edition, leather-bound hand-numbered edition in a leather-bound slipcase. 1955 is currently sold out.
