Car Culture is delighted to announce the arrival of a very special collectible:
The Dashboard: Volume 1 Portfolio Edition
Limited to 25 sets including a print and custom boxed book
Signed by Lucinda Lewis and Tom Matano
The Dashboard doesn’t resemble any book I’ve ever made before. It’s hand-made, with quality like some of the coachbuilt cars portrayed on its pages and also sold as prints on www.carculture.com. Featured on the cover is the 1927 Delage Type: 1.5 Liter Grand Prix Car--Louis Delage's masterwork.
Strictly limited to just 25 sets, these original books are signed by myself (photographer Lucinda Lewis) and Automotive Designer Tom Matano and presented in a hand-made archival clam shell box.
Famed automotive designer, Tom Matano, has provided insightful comments on each dashboard featured with the book. Automobiles portrayed and discussed range from the 1901 Panhard et Levassor 10hp Cab to the 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid. Matano's comments are enlightening and instructional to the automotive aficionado and add a new dimension to Lucinda Lewis’s photographs featured within the book.
The Dashboard is designed and printed by Artisan Books in England on Library of Congress certified archival paper, embossed and bound by hand. The resulting collectable edition is a piece of craftsmanship.
Definitely Better than a Box of Chocolates.
In addition to the book, each Solander box contains a large 11 x 14 inch giclée print of the 1937 Cord Model 812 Berline Limousine from the book. The prints of course, are also signed and numbered in pencil by Lucinda Lewis. Remember, there will only be 25 prints in this edition of the 1937 Cord Model 812 Berline Limousine Dashboard.
Available on a First come - First serve basis.
Size 14 x 16.5"
