Tony Crook (1920 - 2014) is an enigmatic figure in the British motor racing and manufacturing world. For nearly seventy years he was associated with Bristol cars and engines. Four years after his death, Butterfield Press is proud to announce Mr Bristol.

Three years in the making and lavishly illustrated, Mr Bristol celebrates the life of Tony Crook with a biography written by Michael Barton, a treasure trove of photographs from Crook’s racing career, and a generous selection of images (specially commissioned) from his most famous cars (built or owned).

DREAMERS
