The Story of the Car

Car Mechanics (UK) - - Cm Insider - Giles Chap­man

Mo­tor­ing jour­nal­ist and his­to­rian Giles Chap­man will need no in­tro­duc­tion to CM read­ers as the au­thor of Bri­tain’s Toy

Car Wars, The Re­liant Robin and nu­mer­ous other best­selling au­to­mo­tive ti­tles. Al­though The Story of the Car is nom­i­nally aimed at chil­dren and traces the his­tory of mo­tor­ing from the first Benz mo­tor wagon to the record-break­ing Thrustssc, the ab­so­lutely gor­geous il­lus­tra­tions by the de­sign and il­lus­tra­tion col­lec­tive Us Now will be equally ir­re­sistible to adults. You’ll be tempted to buy a copy for your favourite car-mad young­ster and get one for your­self, too!

The large-for­mat hard­back The Story of the Car has full colour il­lus­tra­tions through­out and is pub­lished by Ha­chette Chil­dren’s Group at £12.99. It’s avail­able from

ha­chet­techil­drens.co.uk, Ama­zon and other good book­sell­ers.
