About This Item

Speed, Style, and Beauty Cars from the Ralph Lauren Collection
Text by Winston S. Goodfellow and Beverly Rae Kimes.
Foreword and interview by Darcy Kuronen.
Introduction by Ralph Lauren.
Photographs by Michael Furman.

This breathtaking volume, which accompanies a major exhibition, features more than 200 photographs of 29 automotive wonders – from such unparalleled masterpieces as the 1930 Mercedes Benz SSK “Count Trossi,” the 1938 Alfa Romeo Mille Miglia, and the 1938 Bugatti Atlantic Coupe to marvels from Jaguar, Aston Martin, Ferrari, Porsche, and even a Ford “Woody.” Each of these vehicles is beautifully photographed and presented with authoritative elegance.

Speed, Style, and Beauty is the first book on cars to center its discussion squarely on the car’s role as an art object. The extensive text, by two of the best known and most respected authors writing about automobiles today, gives indispensable background information, but also approaches the cars the way an art historian would approach a fine sculpture – treating them as consummate works of decorative art for the modern age. In addition, an introductory interview with Ralph Lauren explores the links between cars and his overall design philosophy. With images by world-renowned photographer, Michael Furman, plus rarely seen design sketches and period photographs of the cars in action, this elegant yet informative book will delight aficionados of great design in any form and car enthusiasts alike.

240 pages.
