ASTON MARTIN — THE COMPLEAT CAR
By Alan Archer, Neil Murray, Ted Cutting and Richard Williams
Original photography by Richard Newton
A book of reference and of beauty - an illustrated history of the Aston Martin, featuring over 500 photographs. Originally published in 1994, this seminal work is nearly sold out.
|You don't need to be a car buff to appreciate Palawan Press's first limited edition title - but it helps. This definitive illustrated history of Aston Martin is even more exclusive than the cars it depicts and, pound for pound, much more expensive - On the leatherbound cover is a brass plaque (displaying the book's number - 001 to 150 - and the owner's name), produced by the people who 'plate' for posterity Aston Martin's V8 engines. It's a nice bespoke touch that will appeal to gurus on the Antiques Roadshow a century hence. THE INDEPENDENT|
|This must be the ultimate gift for the Aston owner ... it compares well to fine art limited editions, and that is clearly the market to which it aspires. CLASSIC & SPORTSCAR|
