Kayser, Driving Crazy

If you could only feel this book cover you’d know right away this book is up to something. If you like photography and book design and graphic novels, go find a copy.

Motor Racing: The Pursuit of Victory 1963–1972

by Steve Wyatt

From racecar development to trackside fashions, hundreds of period photos bring home an era in racing on the tail end of amateur photogs having unrestricted access to anyone and anything. These days will never come back, so savor these photos!

Gasoline and Magic

by Hilar Stadler / Martin Stollenwerk (editors)

Lovely photos, yes, lots. But they are more than that, if you are inclined to look beyond the surface and parse the authors’ intentions.

LHLW4: The Outtakes

by Bill Wolf

A 1959 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith on the loose in New York City. This “book” was made by the author of a magazine article about this car and presented to people involved in that project.

Vroom! Vroom!

by Koto Bolofo

Ok, there’s a Bugatti on the cover. But this is not a car book. Bolofo is a celebrated fashion photographer but he doesn’t wear “labels” easily. In this book you can explore his work exploring the goings-on at a famous restoration shop.

by David Tremayne

Street Muses of London

by Davide Bassoli

If you like to see London change over three decades, this is a splendid book. If you like to see its streets teeming with Rolls-Royces and Bentleys old and new, this is the only book. Almost 1000 photos tell the story.

Classics on the Street: An Automotive Odyssey, France 1953

by Robert Straub

A moment in time. And what a moment, in automotive terms. Postwar Europe was still populated with prewar iron—and much of it was irretrievably gone a mere ten years later.

Shipbreak

by Claudio Cambon

A “meditation” in words and images on matters far greater than the scrapping of a ship with all its human and environmental hardship. It is enriching, articulate, has a point of view, and is beautifully photographed.

My Porsche Book: Die 356-Ikonen / The Iconic 356s

by René Staud

It’s the photographer as much as the car that is the attraction here, not least because Staud’s career path, philosophy on art/commerce, and his studio and team are covered.

by Rémi Dargegen

Looked at one car at a time, the Baillon Collection is interesting enough but it is the unique circumstances of it being found and brought to market that will forever make it the “find of the century.”
