Description: The three volumes, which make up THE JENSEN FF – 320 SHORT STORIES are the product of over 15 years research. The fine leather bound volumes detail the spirit of a vibrant era, and the distinctive qualities, which made the Jensen FF aspirational and unique. Supported by a wealth of photographs and engaging copy, the appeal of the 320 SHORT STORIES – one story for each car, extends far beyond that of the classic car enthusiast.

Representing the pinnacle of the bookbinders’ art, the royal blue, hand tooled leather bindings, are blocked with the Master Binder’s name as an endorsement of quality. A silk marker ribbon completes the book, which may be ordered with an issue number to correspond with a chosen Jensen FF chassis. the book is stored in its own archival quality slipcase.
