There is a new book out with portraits of the "9 most influential car designers, who are responsible for 90 percent of the cars on the market, today". (As the promo puts it...)

A bit costly, but nice piece for more than the coffee table, nevertheless. ... 84357.html ... dition=new

Sorry, only in German for the time being.

I am not young enough to know everything.

Just to clarify.

There are two versions of the book,

- a German which is distributed solely on the German market by DeliusKlasing

- the original English version which is only distributed by WAFT and hence only for sale through

And yes, it's worth the read, even if we say so ourselves.

What I like about this book is that I had printed off those VW Up sketches and posted them at my desk for years as inspiration.
