This lush and vivid work introduces and beautifully reproduces the posters created over the first fifty-three years of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
Created by several prominent artists, each Concours poster tells a singular automotive tale. It presents the techniques, the style, and the automotive vision of one artist. Some posters explore the lines and curves that signify classic automotive elegance, some pay homage to particular cars and marques, and some are paeans to the automobile in motion.
The accompanying text introduces the artists and discusses their work, detailing the history of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and the rise of both poster and automotive art.
In addition, the book includes the posters created for the Pebble Beach Tour d’Elegance, a driving event for Pebble Beach Concours entrants that began in 1998 and is now a regular part of Pebble Beach Automotive Week.
Lavishly illustrated with 60 magnificent plates and uses a fine stock paper.
