This book is a compilation of 8 outstanding road trips produced for various magazines over the last 20 years. The book combines the beautiful motoring photography of Martyn Goddard with the evocative writing of three excellent motoring journalists, Phil Llewellin, Dale Drinnon and Paul Horrell. Mr Llewellin, who wrote most of the stories, was a very well regarded motoring and travel writer and these stories – journeys or adventures really – are all charmingly told and very accurate in the depth of detail. Several are taken from the iconic classic car magazine Super Car Classics. They recount trips in classic cars, mainly wonderful Citroens. But it is not just about cars, the trips are also about people and places and most importantly, food and wine, as discovered in different parts of France.
The majority of the photographs have never been seen before and are a stunning mix of reportage and beautifully crafted car images. Included are trip notes that give some background to the stories.
A great read for anyone who loves cars, travel, adventure or food and wine in any combination.
