Overview

The automobiles of the classic era—1925 to 1948—were distinguished by their graceful designs, premium craftsmanship, and unusual materials. The French Bugatti, Talbot, and Delage, the American Duesenberg and Packard, the Italian Alfa Romeo—such legendary cars brought art and simple elegance to the road. These and many other spectacular models from the automobile's golden age are featured here in the extra-ordinary photographs of Michael Furman. Never before has a photographer compiled such a collection of cars, created with impeccable artistic appreciation and an exacting eye for detail.In more than 150 full-color photographs, Motor Cars of the Classic Era captures the breathtaking beauty of these objects of desire, some of them extremely rare and published here for the first time. An informative text and an illustrated index of technical information describe the qualities that make each car unique. Sure to appeal to both the high-end automobile collector and the more casual car aficionado, this book is a visual tour de force, a deluxe, beautifully designed volume that matches in spirit the exquisite automobiles it celebrates.
