"[gallery link="file" orderby="title"] The glossy car magazines are awash with too perfect images. The super hi-def imagery that accompanies every automotive launch, editorial story, and TV slot leaves too little mystery. Digital renderings make even the most workaday "
The ABC of cars
Of all the interesting stumble-upons that we have, er, stumbled upon recently, we think this beautiful little set of drawings is up there with the best.
Published in France some time in the 1960 the book is a a nice example automotive art before the Apple Mac came and swept pen and crayon aside forever.
We haven’t been able to find much in the way of info about who author or publisher might be. Perhaps some of our readers who fetishise automotive ephemera might be able to help with that.
We reckon this pre-digital showcase of line and colour has a colourful vibrancy and fascinating appeal that is lacking in a lot of the contemporary stuff…
