The AA Guide to Car Marques - A Graphic Guide to The Brands & Their Logos (2nd Hand Hardback)
Author : Simon Heptinstall.
Whether a dramatic image rendered in chrome such as the Mustang on Ford’s original ‘pony car’, Porsche’s elaborate coat of arms or, like Land Rover, simply the manufacturer’s name, the badge on the bonnet is crucial to the identity of a marque.
This A-Z of more than 90 brand emblems, current and defunct – from Abarth to Zil – tells the stories of each badge and what it reveals of the car maker and its history.
Including annotations of the designs, detailed information about their origins and evolution, delve into this invaluable resource for graphic designers, logo enthusiasts and/or motoring aficionados!

"The cars are listed alphabetically, with the marque on the left, and a short but fascinating description of the car on the right, with a diagram of the colour scheme, and the background."
"Well organised concise book that contains plenty of out of the way facts for enthusiasts with an interest in motoring history." - Google Reviews.
"A book that simply does what it says, a comprehensive and informative guide to car marques. I read this because I find the ideas behind the designs fascinating, but what I wasn't expecting to also learn was the history of the brands themselves. Very interesting." - Goodreads Review.
