Every year, author Stephen Newbury, concept manager with automotive consultancy Tom Walkinshaw Racing, will review the designs of approximately 150 models, from mass-market brands such as Ford, Peugeot, Volvo, and Honda to the more consciously "designed" niche cars from such manufacturers as Pininfarina and Jaguar.
Beautiful Engines
by Stan Grayson
The human stories behind the development of the internal combustion engine are combined with full-color photographs in this coffee-table book to present the beauty of the engines themselves. In addition to the portrait-quality photographs, line drawings, cutaways, and clear text describe how each engine works and its primary uses. The fascinating histories of the engineers and inventors who built these pioneering machines-stories of fame and fortune and tragedy and ruin-are also told. Key stationary and marine engines from France, Germany, and the United Kingdom are shown in addition to famous U.S. engines from such manufacturers as International Harvester and  Fairbanks-Morse.

Classics on the Street : An Automotive Odyssey, France 1953
by Robert Straub
In 1953, Robert Straub set off for a year's study abroad in France. Already interested in cars and their designs (he was later to become a designer for General Motors) he took hundreds of snapshots of exotic (to him) cars on the streets. By the time he returned to France a decade later, nearly all the cars he had seen previously had disappeared due to stringent  post-WW II taxes. Bob Straub's evocative photographs of these classics - Delahayes, Delages,  Bugattis, Tatras, Hotchkiss', Rosengarts, Hispano Suiza's to name a few - are the substance of this book along with his entertaining and informative narrative.
