A car book like no other, Auto Erotica offers a nostalgic look at vintage cars through the literature, leaflets and pamphlets that sold them to us
Over the course of its 240 pages, Auto Erotica covers the gamut of motoring in Britain during the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s through rare ephemeral booklets full of unusual graphic ideas and concepts. Their fabulous photography, dazzling color charts, daring typography, strange foldouts and inspiring styles symbolize the automobile aspirations of generations of Britons.
Assembled by nostalgia enthusiast Jonny Trunk--author of The Music Library and Own Label--the book is also packed full of era-defining classic cars, from those we love to those we can't remember. Expect fast Fords, the XJS, the TR8, MGs, Minis, Maxis, Renaults, Beemers, VWs, Vivas, CitroÃ«ns, DeLoreans and a whole lot more: amazing motorcars from the past, and even some from the future, as you've never seen them before.
