Synopsis

Start your engines. Henry Ford jump-started the age of the automobile with the first assembly-line car in 1908: the Model T. For the next one hundred years, the automobile would evolve from chugging workhorse to tailfin-era showboat to sleek status symbol, stamped with a Mercedes Benz hood ornament. Once a novel invention of wonder, the car of the Postwar Era grew into a necessity of the modern age, a key to the freedom promised by the open road. So various were the choices of colors and features offered to American car buyers, that by 1960 all their possible permutations (by one formula) exceeded the number of molecules on the earth..."Automobiles of the 20th Century" offers a lush visual history of the automobile, decade-by-decade, via 500-plus print advertisements from the Jim Heimann Collection. Advertising has always been the dream work of industry, and nowhere is this more evident than in the world of auto advertising.

Narrated with introductory and chapter text by "New York Times" automotive writer Phil Patton, as well as an illustrated timeline and sidebars, this volume highlights the technological innovations, major manufacturers and dealers, influential historical events, and the influence of popular culture on car design. The car is an indicator of more than mere technological innovation; its trends are a reflection of the cultural zeitgeist, whether in the form of a VW Beetle or a road-ready Hummer. The Stone Age, the Bronze Age - ours could be called the Automobile Age, and this collection puts you in the driver's seat through the 20th century.

Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
If you have Taschen's All-American Ads series you'll probably have all these ads in the various editions. I did a quick check on three of them compared with this book. Here the forties has 36 compared to 110 in the Ads book; fifties has 44 compared to 200 and the sixties with 54 compared to 267. Of course if you don't have the All-American Ads series and want to see just over four hundred auto ads presented in a beautifully designed book then Classic Cars is for you and I think it's way ahead of any similar books.

Each of the ten decades starts with a few hundred words intro and an interesting timeline across the bottom of each page to point out the significant industry developments then the pages feature the ads either one to a spread, or page or two on a page. Fortunately none of them are too small to prevent you reading the amazing copy that writers toiled long hours over. As well as great photos, or art in the early decades, I thought that reading some of this over-the-top copy was one of charms of the book. How about this Olds ad from 1952:
'You've got to drive it to believe it! Never before has Oldsmobile had such an exciting performance story to tell! For here is a NEW kind of "Rocket" Engine car - dramatically new with the flashing 160-hp. "Rocket"...now paired with smooth new Hydra-Matic Super Drive'.
There's page after page of this stuff.

The book's production is quite impressive. The ads have generous margins on the page and captions that provide some background material about the cars. All the ads have been scanned from printed originals yet there is no screen clash and with matt art paper and a three hundred screen these ads are about as prefect as you'll get.

A wonderful, colourful look at American wheels.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Großartiges Buch 7. März 2013
Von henkela
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Wieder einmal ein phantastisches Buch des Taschen Verlas. Egal ob man sich mehr für Werbung oder für Autos interessiert, diese Buch lohnt sich auf jeden Fall. Sehr schöne Aufmachung, exzellente Druckqualität so wie man es von Taschen gewohnt ist. Die Anzeigen reichen vom Beginn des Automobilbaus bis zum Jahr 1999, so kann man den Niedergang der amerikanischen Automobilindustrie von Jahrzehnt zu Jahrzent verfolgen. Für mich persönlich sind die 50-70 Jahre am interessantesten. Text ist in englisch , deutsch und französich.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Blockbuster Collection of Car Ads Is Unequaled 5. Juni 2009
Von J. Cherry - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
There's been several collections of car ads published in book form through the years but Taschen's 20th Century Classic Cars establishes a new standard for the genre. This is so inclusive, it's the only one you'll need. It includes well-written essays and a clever time line to put things in perspective.

Exhaustive, lavish, and well-designed, this is one volume any car buff, ad junkie or pop culture fan will want in their library.

Published to usual world-class Taschen standards, it would make an ideal gift. Only one word of warning, don't open it unless you're prepared to lose a few hours, it's difficult to put down.

Von Ricko - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
At first glance this is a fine collection of automotive advertisements. However, the grainy reproductions and odd selection of car models left me a little disappointed. Too many mundane examples of boring cars! Where are the iconic designs (Raymond Loewy's 1953 Studebaker) and spectacular advertisements (Van Cleef Jewels and Cadillacs)? Text is ok, and generally a good effort, but certainly nothing special about the illustrations.

3.0 von 5 Sternen OK but very limited number of ads 12. Oktober 2012

For the most comprehensive collection of ads see 'Automobile Ads of the 50's and 60's' ISBN: 1928618073 which is a CD-ROM containing well over 2000 ads. Don't miss the over 100 other automobile titles from the same author (HI-Tech Software) on Amazon.
