The goal was to sell more cars primarily by employing artists to create vehicles with ‘eye appeal’ for the buying public.

There were many thousands of drawings of these futuristic models, but almost all have been lost or purposely destroyed by the manufacturers to minimize copying.

The eye-catching images shown in this book have been gatheredtogether over the last 15 years and now form part of The Kelley Collection.

They are rare survivors and illustrate the work of the men and woman who drew and designed the cars from their early days at art school and during their employment with the ‘Big Three’ automobile manufacturers.

These artists have been almost forgotten and this book honors them for their contributions and imagination.

The reader is taken back to earlier times when the sky was the limit, dreams and vision were encouraged and restrictions were few.

87 individual artists are represented here with 235 wonderfully unique images.
