About Mini Scrapbook: 60 years of a British icon

Launched in 1959, the Mini helped to change automotive design, with its unique combination of aesthetics, space efficiency, engineering approach, and handling. Alec Issigonis’s masterpiece was an instant hit – not just with the buying public, but with celebrities and racers alike, from Sir Stirling Moss to ‘The Fab Four’. The Mini became a much-loved staple of the British car industry – a position that it has arguably enjoyed for 60 years and continues today.

Author Martin Port set the scene with a look at why this charismatic little car is so loved around the world. He reveals how the concept became a reality and covers each main incarnation of the classic Mini, from 1959 to 2000. From celebrity owners to appearances on the silver screen, competition wins and all sorts of weird and wonderful Mini variants – this is the ultimate visual guide to an icon of British design.
