ASTON MARTIN BOOK

If your vibe is classic British motor design and elegant high-performance, check out Aston Martin by Richard Loveys. Coming out in paperback and eBook editions in April, this 64-page book from Shire Library features an illustrated history of Aston Martin, the company's record on the racing circuit, and even a chapter on James Bond. From the press release: "Aston Martin is now a century old- and what a century it has been. Since its birth in London on the eve of the First World War, the company has experienced the highs of racing triumph- most famously in the 1959 Le Mans 24-hour race- and the lows of bankruptcy, yet throughout it all has been in the first rank of British marques. Published in association with the Aston Martin Heritage Trust and written by enthusiast Richard Loveys, Aston Martin is a fully illustrated history of the company that has created some of the the world’s best loved and most widely respected cars, including James Bond’s iconic DB5. It covers the cars themselves, the personalities and talents who have shaped Aston Martin, from owners to engineers, and the drivers who have shared with the company in racing glory, and the centenary celebrations of 2013." Loveys is a long-time member of the Aston Martin Owners Club and became a trustee of the Aston Martin Heritage Trust in 2008. More info at Amazon, Amazon UK, and Shire
