From the first motor cars to today's supercars and environmentally-friendly electric models, this is the ultimate book about the history of the car. Packed with stunning photography, and ...featuring more than 2,000 cars, The Car Book shows you how cars have evolved around the world over the last 130 years, and their impact on society as objects of curiosity, symbols of status and luxury, and items of necessity. Extensive catalogues showcase the most important marques and models, organized in categories such as sports cars, convertibles, and city compacts. The book also features virtual photographic tours of some of the most iconic cars from each era, such as the Rolls Royce Silver Ghost, Ford Model T, Lamborghini Countach, and McLaren Speedtail, while cross-sections of key engines explore the driving force behind them. Lavishly illustrated feature spreads detail the stories of the individuals, machines, and visionary ideas that helped create the car world's most famous marques and made brands such as Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, Aston Martin, and Cadillac household names. If you love cars, then you'll love The Car Book. It is simply a must-have title for all motoring enthusiasts.

            Most of what we say about books is really about their contents- the rosy nostalgic glow for childhood reading, the lifetime companionship of a much-loved novel. But books are things as well as words, objects in our lives as well as worlds in our heads. And just as we crack their ...spines, loosen their leaves and write in their margins, so they disrupt and disorder us in turn. All books are, as Stephen King put it, 'a uniquely portable magic'. In this thrilling new history, Emma Smith shows us why. Portable Magic unfurls an exciting, iconoclastic and ambitious new story of the book in human hands, exploring when, why and how it acquired its particular hold over humankind. Gathering together a millennium's worth of pivotal encounters with volumes big and small, Smith compellingly argues that, as much as their contents, it is books' physical form - their 'bookhood' - that lends them their distinctive and sometimes dangerous magic. From the Diamond Sutra to Jilly Cooper's Riders, to a book made of wrapped slices of cheese, Smith uncovers how this composite artisanal object has, for centuries, embodied and extended relationships between readers, nations, ideologies and cultures, in significant and unpredictable ways. She celebrates the rise of the mass-market paperback, and dismantles the myth that print began with Gutenberg; she reveals how our reading habits have been shaped by American soldiers, and proposes a new definition of a 'classic'. Ultimately, Smith illuminates the ways in which our relationship with the written word is more reciprocal - and more turbulent - than we tend to imagine- for better or worse, books do not simply reflect humankind, but have also defined who we are, turning us into the readers they would like to have.
