The Atlas of Car Design: The World’s Most Iconic Cars

In its 568 pages, The Atlas of Car Design features 750 photos & illustrations that show off the 650 most beloved (and hated) car designs throughout the decades.



Iconic German, Japanese, French, Italian, British, and American vehicles that have revolutionized the car industry—both in form and function—are on glorious display on every page of this illustrated coffee table book.



Follow along to see how cars have evolved from their first creation little more than a century ago, and how the world (including travel, advertising, and photography) has changed right along with them.



It’s an in-depth look into every aspect of the car industry, from design to engineering to economics to culture to fandoms, one that will keep you hooked from start to finish.
