This book "Jon Bannenberg : A Life Of Design" takes you through his extraordinary four-decade-long career. Written by Dickie Bannenberg, who worked alongside his father for 20 years, the book paints the picture of a man who successfully broke with convention, and who mentored many of today's top designers, such as Terence Disdale, Tim Heywood, Sam Sorgiovanni, Donald Starkey, and Andrew Winch. Yacht Designing came into the picture for Jon in the early 1960s, at a time when the very concept of a yacht designer didn't even exist. The book takes you from those early days through to the establishment of his studio. You'll learn how Jon received a huge break in the form of the QE2. He designed several areas of the ship. In terms of yachting, the book reveals one of his most important assertions. He believed a yacht should not be treated as three separate designs, meaning naval architecture (hull), exterior design (superstructure), and interior design. Rather, he avowed that all could spring from the same drawing board. It forever changed how owners and the industry operate. The Bannenberg studio went on to produce more than 200 more yachts. Their names are as famous as their original owners: Carinthia VI (Helmut Horten and later his widow Heidi); Nabila (Adnan Khashoggi), the three My Gail projects (Gerald Ronson); Talitha (J.P. Getty Jr.); and of course The Highlander (Malcolm Forbes). No wonder Jon was appointed a Royal Designer for Industry in 1978, only the second yacht designer to receive the honor. Sadly, he didn't live to see some of his other famous creations come to life, notably Rising Sun. Dickie Bannneberg spent five years working on this book. He pulled together his father's drawings, photos, and letters. There are 800 illustrations alone, each carefully detailed and captioned. The 544 pages of this book celebrates a man who deserves ongoing recognition for challenging preconceived ideas. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Ships & the Sea; ISBN: No ISBN.
