“He loved speed. He was strong-headed. We could have gotten along well, I think.”
—Maria Sharapova

Can it really be a quarter-century now that Steve McQueen has been gone? Felled in 1980 while undergoing treatments for mesothelioma, the actor who ruled the box office in the 1960s and 70s remains a myth, having been a juvenile delinquent, Marine, oilfield roughneck, lumberjack, producer, motorcycle racer, sports car driver, and Hollywood King of Cool.

Verlhac Editions is proud to announce a revamp of its popular forthcoming Unforgettable Steve McQueen, which now features a series of exclusive quotes from famous McQueen admirers such as Formula One pilots Kimi Raikkonen, Lewis Hamilton, and Sébastien Bourdais, actresses Uma Thurman and Priyanka Chopra, and tennis star Maria Sharapova. Steve McQueen inspired these prestigious celebrities so much that we felt compelled to allow them to express themselves in Unforgettable Steve McQueen.

Now, Unforgettable Steve McQueen documents his fascinating life with a collection of rare and stunning images. McQueen is most famous for his work in such films as The Great Escape, The Thomas Crown Affair, Bullitt, and The Towering Inferno, but was also an avid motor racer, whom the American Motorcyclist Association posthumously added to their Hall of Fame in 1999 and hailed for helping the sport overcome its outlaw image. The book captures both life stories in photographs by Sid Avery, William Claxton, Raymond Depardon, Larry Kastendiek, and others, as well as vintage selections from various archives. Unforgettable Steve McQueen is the definitive picture book on this legendary icon.
