Book: Automotive treasures of the 20th century

A very nice book by Olivier Costa that has been offered since spring. With a pencil, the artist (in his free time) always “shreds” the cars of his dreams. The book is excellent and accompanied by simple and well-reasoned text illustrations. Above all, the facility is magnificent, both in its production and design.
