“For most of the last century, the symbiotic relation that car design has had with modern society goes beyond being a barometer of human conditions: it has been a catalyst for economic change and a reflection of ‘human’ industrial history. This book is all about that: the history of car design and how it has changed over the decades; coachbuilders, who as scalpel wielders, have shaped the design evolution of the automobile; the star designers who have played a very significant role in influencing the world of design, both automotive and otherwise, and finally, the cars themselves: the bold, the beautiful, the intriguing. Plus, the stuff made of dreams: the dream cars and concept cars that are a fascinating window to the future, a periscope to a life beyond the here and now. 136 pages with almost 400 photos!
