It has been ten years that a family of four boys, ages ten to eighteen today, guided by their father François, has worked on a virtual automobile brand called Edlé-Guigeo, named after Edouard, Léopold, Guillaume and Geoffroy, the foursome's first names.

Seventy-two foam or plaster models photographed in home-made theater sets, more than four hundred and fifty drawings or paintings, and even a few hand-made vehicles, illustrate this imaginary story of Edlé-Guigeo. Conceptualized as an automotive brand, with logo, names of the car models, and technical analysis, you will thus discover the first Edlé-Guigeo from the early days of the automobile, the Golden Twenties of the interwar years, the first pontoon stylings of the fifties, followed by today's models, not to mention a few concept cars as well as racing models. Nothing was forgotten, and in ten years, the family has written one hundred years of history for this imaginary car manufacturer! Through this original idea, the family teamwork, the perseverance, and the technical and artistic creativity, transpires the parents' will to pass on the taste of undertaking and to form childhood memories.

This book spans 18 chapters. The first, entitled "Genesis", establishes the rules of engagement with complete transparency. It specifies that it is first and foremost a family project with no pretention of expertise, whether it be in design, model making, decor or entrepreneurship. It states the sources of inspiration drawn from the history of the automobile, such as the great French brands which no longer exist (Bugatti, Delage, Talbot, Voisin, …), more particularly the brand Peugeot, the German manufacturers in the upscale market, Michel Vaillant of course, and the illustrators Geo Ham, René Vincent, Alexis Kow…

The rest of the chapters introduce the lineup of cars throughout the decades, winding up with the handmade vehicles and a Making-of the models, the sets and the photos.
