Porsche Artifacts Book / Type 7

The Type 7 / Porsche Artifacts Book is an art book featuring an unparalleled view into the Porsche Historic Archive, capturing in rich photography a curated collection of the millions of items that have weaved the fabric of Porsche over the last 75 years. From engineering notebooks to the original sketch of the iconic Porsche Crest, each object is presented in a deeply tactile, uncompromising experience that aims to evoke the feeling of entering the vault in Stuttgart as an archivist and exploring the physical history of Porsche.

Millions of items have been curated to a meaningful selection that explore the full spread of the Archive, encompassing Porsche family items, equipment from Porsche design and development history, and documents of iconic cars, all of which are tied directly to the vehicles inside the Porsche Museum. Each of the selected items were photographed by Creative Director and photographer Thomas Walk in a specially-constructed studio space on-site in Zuffenhausen, while vehicles were photographed in situ at the Porsche Museum.

Spanning across 356 pages, the large-format coffee table book accompanies its photography with a separate pull-out Index, featuring the stories behind each item, written by Type 7 Editor Nat Twiss. The result is a reader experience which evokes the experience of entering a vault and exploring the physical history of Porsche.

Readers can expect from the Porsche Artifacts Book a true aesthetic experience. Artifacts arrives wrapped in a paper design with elements in homage to design blueprints. Once unwrapped, readers will find the archive box, complete with reenforced metal corners. After breaking a seal, the book’s red slipcase is revealed; inspired by racing pedigree and the thousands of document folders that line the shelves of the Archive. Readers slowly unravel the book as a physical experience; unwinding a string, exploring the exposed binding techniques, eventually finding the trove of photographs and information within.
