A pictorial dictionary of racing colours; as much a work of graphic art as a reference book. Each page contains a grid of 30 line drawings of a jockey shirt and cap with the colours and names of the owners. Nearly 10,000 registered owners' racing colours are depicted. The whole makes a stunning graphic design book and the perfect gift for racing fans. Increasingly scarce, especially in the dust jacketed edition.
