No Zorro bullshit


"Cars: Freedom, Style, Sex, Power, Motion, Colour, Everything"
By Stephen Bayley

Excited to come across this clean and elegant presentation of vintage cars ranging from the Model T to the 2003 BMW 5 series. We were immediately drawn to the taupe suede cover and minimalist black and white photography which allows for a closer inspection of the object ie the car itself. A beautiful balance between pictures and text with witty insights about the cars portrayed. The description of the Series 1 Land Rover informs the reader of it's perfect balance between form and function with "no zorro bullshit", just as the book, a thing unto itself.
