World's Most Expensive
18 Greatest Golf Debuts Visually Stunning Books for Discerning Golfers
December 14, 2012
Capturing some of the world's most breathtaking links and scenes, “18 Greatest Scottish Golf Holes” and “18 Greatest Irish Golf Holes” have led Math Kuchar, the PGA Tour's 2010 leading money winner to rave, “The most beautiful golf book I have ever seen.”
According to the National Golf Foundation's 2012 golf participation study, there were 25.7 million golfers in the U.S. alone in 2011. Presenting these individuals with a gift they'll love yet haven't already bought for themselves, however, is not always an easy feat given that golfers tend to be an affluent and discerning group.
By combining limited edition collectability into its oversized, stunningly photographed and illustrated luxurious bound volumes and framed prints, 18 Greatest Golf appeals to this golfer discernment, making the company's books and artwork a great gift not only for the avid golfer, but also the Ireland/Scotland traveler and any sophisticated man or woman.
Printed and hand-finished at arguably the world's finest print house, Editoriale Bortolazzi Stei in Verona, Italy, the high definition and high density treatment of the photographs and illustrations in the 18 Greatest Golf Collection is truly mesmerizing. Each book features brilliant, unique work from photographer John Kernick combined with the gorgeous art direction of Siobhan Royer-Hardy and exclusive interviews with the game's luminaries to provide a more beautiful and accomplished collection than any other golf books on the market.
The first two titles in the book series, “18 Greatest Scottish Golf Holes” and “18 Greatest Irish Golf Holes,” are large coffee table volumes that take browsers on a stunning journey through Scotland and Ireland. The exclusive photography and illustrations captured therein are also available singly as large format, hand-numbered limited edition framed prints.
Readers of the 18 Greatest Golf volumes will trek across the UK's top links, with some of the game's greatest players serving as their guides. Limited to 3,000 copies, the Scottish edition features the Old Course at St. Andrews, Turnberry, Carnoustie, Royal Troon and Royal Dornoch. The 5,000 copy Irish edition is packed with interviews with golfing greats Clarke, Harrington, McDowell and McIlroy. Courses in the spotlight include Ballybunion, Portmarnock, Royal Potrush and Royal County Down.
Thanks to their stunning artwork, the “Wall Street Journal” has called both books “sumptuous and superb” and “Forbes” magazine has described them as “instant collectibles.” This is an assessment with which Jason Scott Deegan, senior staff writer for the Golf Channel's Travel Golf concurs. “Of the hundreds of golf books sitting in my office, these two ‘18 Greatest' books will be among the handful I keep for the rest of my days and thumb through on a regular basis.”
18 Greatest Golf's limited edition coffee table books ($199) are available in select golf stores nationwide and online at www.18GreatestGolf.com with speedy shipping.
