7 min read

I truly managed to learn a number of automotive design books within the final yr, one upside of lockdown it appears. There are lots of espresso desk, or reference works on vehicles and even automotive design (in concept). Loads of these are very dry- and primarily simply value checking for pictures or details/knowledge, however not for entertaining studying. I assume I received’t be despatched any additional overview copies by publishers as I used to be very essential of the Bruno Sacco biography for example- which wasn’t a biography in any respect. In the event you would truly prefer to be taught something about automotive design I’ve learn a number of books that I might suggest (please excuse the novice photographs of the books).

The obvious supply of automotive design knowledge or perception, would come from an autobiography of a automotive designer we will assume? As a result of area of interest nature of this topic- these are sadly uncommon. The designers that we need to hear from are sometimes nonetheless a part of the enterprise and the politics of the trade stop them from sharing something fascinating. They’re additionally a lot too busy to place any phrases to paper. Fortunately now we have 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 printed in English, this e-book is among the greatest 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 Traces.
