American Car Design Now
Car design is a complex art that involves a lot more than just putting pen to paper or mouse to pad. American Car Design Now by C. Edson Armi gives us an inside look at the process through the words and techniques of top designers from Ford, General Motors and DaimlerChrysler. The book explores not just style and shapes, but how designers approach the customer, the accountants, and most importantly, the executives upstairs, as they strive to create an ideal design. It's not a light or casual read, but for the dedicated student of automotive design, the book is packed with fascinating insights into how experts like Tom Gale, J Mays, Wayne Cherry and others produce some of Motown's most enticing car designs.
