Under The Spotlight – Rolls-royce and Bentley at the Earls Court Motor Show from 1937 to 1976 By Davide Bassoli, £235,
nubesargentea.com, ISBN 978 8 8909 5718 5 What seems like an incredibly specific subject study at an enormous price turns out to be a sumptuous journey through five decades of motor show theatre.
Marque authority Davide Bassoli naturally keeps the focus on Cricklewood and Crewe, but it’s not just each major new model that’s detailed. Each Earls Court floorplan has been unearthed and photographs of every model – plus candid shots with visiting celebrity customers – have been reproduced. Every coachbuilt variation has been detailed. An intoxicating immersion.
