Help please - Cortina and 312T pics

I need a picture of a Lotus Cortina and a Ferrari 312T , from the rear , for a book cover . If you can help please pm me .



NB - there's no money in it, the images will form part of a bigger composite image but I will credit your copyright and you'll get a signed copy of the book.

Can let you have Cortina pics. What angle do you want?
Better still you are close enough to come and get your own picture if you wish.

Sorry I don't have a 312T.

No money? Wow that will attract the professionals..........

Is the book being given away or proceeds to a worthy charity?

Think Fiskens sold a 312 T3, they must have pictures of it. If not, you can try with motor passion.com may be they can help.
My former boss, Jacques Setton had one in his wide collection, a book relates this: Les bolides de Jack Setton, by Hervé Poulain- famous auctioneer in France - and Alberto Martinez, éditions EPA.

If you allow me, may be you should be careful with cavalino's products images. I use to co-write a book together with my friend Alain Bienvenu about F road models. As far as I can remember, editor was Mondadori, chief editor was Thierry Soave and they had to discuss a long time about images to put in the book. Now you have the same situation with Stuttgart, I guess.
When a lot of money is around, people become rather touchy…

I worked out that the book has cost me 1000 hours of my time and , so far, about 7k in expenses. I will get 10% royalty on sales . It would be nice to break even, or perhaps make some profit, but in this game you never know . I am not a professional writer , I do it because I love writing, and have had stuff published since the early 80s , some for fees (and these days they are risibly low, in one case half what I got 20 years ago ) . It's been hugely gratifying to hear from people - letters , emails and in person that they've enjoyed reading my stuff . The majority of my work has been for nothing .



This is my third book, the other two were on a different subject and both were very well reviewed , and sold reasonably well . I reckon I am about 2k up..


Hardly anybody writes books to make money, and if you make some it's a bonus. I cannot afford to pay professional fees . In connection with a number of articles I've written some amateur photographers have been more than happy to let me us their own photographs , in return for a credit and a free copy of the publication . I appreciate their goodwill .



So no ,I am not donating my royalties to charity , but thank you for the invitation to do so . ...
