7 min read

I truly managed to learn just a few automotive design books within the final yr, one upside of lockdown it appears. There are numerous espresso desk, or reference works on automobiles and even automotive design (in idea). Lots of these are very dry- and basically simply value checking for images or info/knowledge, however not for entertaining studying. I suppose I gained’t be despatched any additional evaluate copies by publishers as I used to be very important of the Bruno Sacco biography for example- which wasn’t a biography in any respect. For those who would truly prefer to be taught something about automotive design I’ve learn just a few books that I might advocate (please excuse the beginner images of the books).

The obvious supply of automotive design knowledge or perception, would come from an autobiography of a automotive designer we are able to assume? Because of the area of interest nature of this topic- these are sadly uncommon. The designers that we wish to hear from are sometimes nonetheless a part of the enterprise and the politics of the business stop them from sharing something fascinating. They’re additionally a lot too busy to place any phrases to paper. Fortunately we’ve just lately been handled by one of many giants of the automotive design enterprise, to a genuinely self penned autobiography of astonishing high quality. Initially written in French, however translated immaculately by one other automotive design knowledgeable (and buddy of the creator) Tony Lewin and revealed in English, this guide is likely one of the finest I’ve ever learn on this topic. I’m speaking about Patrick Le Quément’s life in automotive design which he has shared with us and titled: Design Between the Strains.
