For a short pe­riod in the 1930s, Adrian Squire’s exclusive sport­ing cars typ­i­fied the play­boy life­style. Yet un­der­ly­ing their glam­orous im­age and sleek, low-slung bod­ies was a tragic story of en­gi­neer­ing pas­sion. Hav­ing de­vel­oped the Squire Mo­tor Com­pany when he was just 21 years old, Adrian was dead within a decade, leav­ing be­hind a re­mark­able legacy given the low num­bers of cars pro­duced. Ex­haus­tively re­searched by Clas­sic Cars founder Jonathan Wood, him­self a Squire afi­cionado for half-a-cen­tury, this hand­some vol­ume has been pro­duced with the full co­op­er­a­tion of the Squire fam­ily. Aside from the stan­dard book, Adrian Squire’s son and daugh­ter have signed 101 lim­ited edi­tion copies in leather and slip­case, at £200 each. www.squire­book.co.uk
