Retrofuturism: The Car Design of J Mays  The man behind the new VW Beetle, J Mays is considered one of the most revolutionary designers in the history of the automobile. This, the first book on his work, tracks his innovative career from his early days at Audi to his current tenure at Ford (where he designs seven lines: Ford, Mercury, Lincoln, Mazda, Jaguar, Aston Martin, and Volvo). He believes that the innovations of the past should be used to inform future solutions. A focus of the book will be duets of cars-the original and the new Beetle, the classic 1957 Thunderbird and its redesigned contemporary counterpart.  A section is devoted to a short history of car design.   9 x 11 , 96 pages, many illustrations
