A Century of Automotive Style: 100 Years of American Car Design

Front Cover
Lamm-Morada Publishing Company, 1996 - Transportation - 306 pages
This rich automotive history will engage car buffs for hours of learning and diversion, for the book differs from most chronicles of the evolution of the horseless carriage by focusing on one particular, and fascinating, aspect: the styling of cars--their 'overall shape, ornamentation and resulting aura.' Resting on the premise that 'styling sells,' the authors' large-format, heavily illustrated account goes into luscious detail about important designers, influential design trends, and noteworthy (in their aesthetic appeal) car models throughout the entire 100-year history of the automobile. A distinctive addition to technology collections that all public libraries should consider for purchase. - Brad Hooper; 306p - YA: For browsers and reluctant readers, as well as YAs interested in cars.
