Unique & Limited is a Czech fine art studio that specializes in the celebration of automobile motor sports. WAFT Publishing out of Belgium creates high-end books about cars and car design. Together they have just released a knowledgeable and beautiful volume featuring some of the most historic moments of racing.

When Sex Was Safe ($65) – and motorracing bloody dangerous – has recreated 21 of Unique & Limited’s detailed posters within this 252-page chronicle of a sport many consider only slightly less risky than jumping from an airplane without a parachute. As beautiful as it is as a coffee table book, ‘When Sex Was Safe’ is a compelling story of the evolution of motor sport racing.
