A Century of Automotive Style

A Century of Automotive Style

We’ve reprinted the original hardcover book. It consists of 308 pages and 900+ photographs and illustrations. A Century of Automotive Style remains the book of choice for anyone interested in or involved with car design. Authored by Michael Lamm and Dave Holls, it’s a 100-year history that explains why cars looked—and look—the way they do, who designed what and why. The original hardcover book was voted “must have” by major enthusiast magazines in the U.S. and Europe. It also won the Society of Automotive Historians’ prestigious Cugnot Award in 1997. The book was out of print for a number of years, but you can now enjoy it as one of the automotive world’s best reads and then keep it in your library for handy, longterm reference.
