Forgotten Motoring

ISBN: 9781788840934 (HB - E)

This evocative volume gathers British motoring memorabilia, transporting us back to a time when roads were filled with bulbous Austin Somersets, humpbacked Standard Vanguards and unique road signs. Between cigarette cards advocating road safety, vintage motoring maps and black-and-white photos of classic cars in their prime, The Open Road packs an impressive cache of paraphernalia between its pages. A quaint, inspirational collection with delightful images at every turn of the road. No Sat Nav here.

Peter Ashley, the author of London Peculiars, has produced three new books for ACC. Two for the autumn The Slow Train (9781788840927) and The Bicycle (9781788840941) - and one for Spring 2021, The Open Road (9781788840934). This nostalgic three-book series celebrates a slower, old-fashioned way of life. Peter Ashley is an aficionado of British culture, responsible for the Unmitigated England trilogy, Preposterous Erections (his book on folly towers) and London Peculiars (one of the first books in ACC Art Books' bestselling London series). Peter is renowned for his passion for the oddities that make this country unique, as Jonathan Meades has said, "He is the gatekeeper to several generations' memories."
