A New Book Traces the Influence of Car Design on Modern Architecture

“As the name suggests….The publication is not just about automotive eye candy, but offers six chapters of probing observations, notable quotes and images of architecture spanning the 15th century to the present, revealing fascinating contrasts between the two disciplines of design. While Carchitecture devotes most of its pages to European automobiles and architecture, readers also glimpse some unlikely pairings, such as an Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale in an abandoned factory in China. An international world-tour, the work also takes readers to Japan, Mexico, Brazil and the United States.” – Robb Report

As the name suggests, this book takes a critical look at automobiles and architecture with thoughtful essays and world-class images.

David Bowie: Icon Captures the Star Man's Unique Image - Arts & Collections

“But novel though [Bowie’s] appearance was, he proved to be no artistic flash in the pan. Arguably the first musical artist to constantly reinvent himself though revising his image, Bowie proved to be as much a visual icon of the 70s, 80s and 90s as he was a musical innovator. Now, all that glam has been captured in a spectacular book published by ACC Art Books. David Bowie: Icon, edited by Iconic Images and with an introduction by Bowie’s long-time friend and collaborator George Underwood, collects the work of 25 photographers who captured Bowie at his mercurial best, from obscurity to mega-stardom.” – Arts & Collections

David Bowie’s image was as much a part of his art as was his music. In a luxurious new book, photographers capture images of the rock icon
