27 Jan Strive for Perfection
Nick Martel, founder and owner of the Guernsey based retailer Avant Garden Bronzes, has been selected to feature in the official commemorative album to one of the world’s oldest and most prestigious car clubs, the International Club for Rolls-Royce and Bentley Enthusiasts (or RREC).
“Strive for Perfection: Celebrating 20 years of Goodwood” will be launched at Grosvenor House hotel in central London on Friday 6 October 2023.
The editorial feature will tell the story of Nick and Avant Garden reaching out to all corners of the world. Exploring his life and work in Guernsey and how he grew the business from a charming boutique local shop in the Channel Islands to having an established national and international online presence selling exquisite bronze sculptures and exceptional garden furniture.
The beautifully designed 400-page hardback book is produced by leading publisher St James’s House and written by an editorial team of renowned motoring journalists and industry experts. Launched to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Rolls-Royce’s famous production plant at Goodwood in West Sussex, it explores the marque’s commitment to sustainable luxury and eco-friendly values, as well as the facility’s history to date, as the beating heart of Rolls-Royce’s production process.
To resonate with the book’s theme of sustainable luxury, a carefully curated selection of high-end brands will be present at the launch, enabling guests to immerse themselves in a world of luxurious tastes, products and experiences.
Nick will be one of the individuals and organisations to be included in the album. “Being invited to be part of this landmark commemorative album celebrating the 20th anniversary of Rolls-Royce’s state of the art production plant at Goodwood is an unbelievable privilege and honour.”
This celebratory album is going to be of worldwide interest to car enthusiasts old and young as well as those keen to see a sustainable future.
Richard Freed, CEO of St James’s House, said “We’re delighted to have the RREC to produce this beautiful book, which celebrates20 years of Rolls-Royce’s Goodwood production plant and highlights the very best of sustainable luxury.”
