A new definitive series of articles on the Jaguar Mascot

By Ian Cooling and Tony Bailey

See Classic Jaguar World, February 2002 (out January 2002) onwards!

[Extract from the introduction]
This will be the the first in a series of detailed and carefully researched articles on the Jaguar mascot and its various derivatives spanning several issues. Your guides will be Jaguar automobilia guru Ian Cooling, and Tony Bailey, owner of one of the finest private collections of Jaguar automobilia in the world.

The series will comprise the gestation and birth of the original factory mascot in the 1930s; the later development of that mascot down to the present day; and a detailed investigation of the myriad non-factory mascots produced.

En route, we shall look at the different ways the company has used the mascot cum- logo (one of Jaguar’s most valuable corporate assets), take a trip to see how the current mascot is produced, review current legislation on fitting car mascots and, for sake of completeness, take a look at Swallow mascots down the years.
