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
