Ever since seeing the owner’s manual for Billionaire Playboy Larry Ellison’s custom Cobra, I have wanted to make one. In many ways, it is cooler than the car itself, which is no small feat. But the thing is, I’ve seen a lot of Cobras, and have even owned 2 (one of which I stiill drive). They’re wonderful cars, but I had never seen a photo album quite like this one until I came across it reading about Larry’s Cobra. There are many more details in the book than I can document here, so read the article on Kirkham’s site about the book and the car.

Or, just enjoy the eye candy:

Cobra Book Cover

Polished aluminum with an egraved inset brass plaque for the cover.  Actually, not brass but stainless heat treated to that color.

CNC machined photo album

Inside cover looks like an aerospace part. They’ve could’ve used some HSM tool paths it looks like Those are simple spirals in the photo…

Engraved spine

Nicely engraved and polished spine. That’s the car you see reflected in the photos…

Leather covered back cover

Back cover is leather covered…

One day I will make one of these as a photo album!
