Product description

Over 125 car logos from around the world are examined and interpreted in this compelling book, from the prancing horse of Ferrari to the three red diamonds of Mitsubishi; from the script-in-oval trademark of Ford to the circled star of Mercedes-Benz. Every logo currently in use is included, alongside dozens of fascinating examples now found only on vintage and classic cars. The individual stories behind every logo are brought alive through 1000 illustrations, showing the logos in detail and how they have been applied to overall car design.
