CAIRO BOOKS's Description
The ultimate car book-a love letter to the most beautiful 86 cars ever
manufactured by an award -winning car columnist and important cultural and
The story of the car is the story of how objects of industry became a medium
of artistic expression. Memorials of our tastes, yearnings, and capabilities,
these machines have layers of meaning and can (as Henry Ford knew) be read like
a book . . if only you know how.
Stephen Bayley, car columnist, design authority and cultural commentator
knows how, and in this opinionated volume, presents a spectacular study of
achievements in car design. Bayley's 86 favorite designs range from the 1908
Ford Model T, to the 1961 Jaguar E-Type, to the 2003 BMW 5. All presented in
chronological order, each automobile also makes a statement about the national
character of the country of manufacture.
In addition, hundreds of ravishing photographs (including full-body, interior
and detail shots) and an elegant slipcase, make CARS the perfect gift book for
all car enthusiasts and design aficionados.
