Ed "Big Daddy" Roth (1932-2001) was a phenomenon. His body of work is still discussed in hot rodding, fine arts and pop culture circles and his cult following remains as devoted as it was during his career. His 1963 Mysterion show car--featuring two big-block Ford V8s--was his masterpiece and the story of its rise and brief existence is legendary. Though it was immortalized as a popular plastic model kit and is featured on several websites, little is known about Roth's magnum opus. There are a number of fanciful stories of its demise--mostly fiction. Combining history and shop class, this book provides a full investigation of Mysterion--both the legend and the machine itself. Drawing on interviews, magazine articles, photos, models and other (sometimes obscure) sources, the author pieces together the true story of the car, while documenting his own faithful bolt-by-bolt recreation of Mysterion.

In The One Percenter Code, best-selling Motorbooks author and editor of Easyriders magazine Dave Nichols takes up where he left off in One Percenter: The Legend of The Outlaw Bikers. Nichols takes readers inside the world of outlaw motorcycle clubs and pulls back the secretive curtain on the biker lifestyle. He explores the concept of brotherhood, ultimately arriving at a new definition of family and community in the process. Being a member of a one percenter motorcycle club requires extreme discipline; in this book, Nichols shows us what that life offers in return. Nichols delves into the one percenter code of conduct and honor and finds something that is sorely lacking in modern society. In this book, he shows us how we can apply those values in our own lives. The world of the outlaw biker has its own rough-hewn rules of order, and The One Percenter Code acts as a guidebook to that truth-, honor-, and brotherhood-based world.

Complete prints and posters of Josh Agle, aka Shag, the California-based artist whose bold, bright, irreverent takes on the swingin' styles and profiles of jetsetters, cocktail-lounge crawlers, scene-stealing supervillains and (literal) party animals have made him one of the most popular painters working today. Rendered in eye-popping, mood-enhancing colours, with a deceptively simple sense of design, the world of Shag transports viewers into a realm of hedonistic pursuits and elegant pleasures whose overriding theme decrees: the party must go on!

The reach of the car today is almost universal, and its effect on landscapes, cityscapes, cultures – indeed, on the very fabric of the modern world – is profound. Cars have brought benefits to individuals in terms of mobility and expanded horizons, but the cost has been very high in terms of damage to the environment and the consumption of precious resources. Despite the growing belief that a Faustian price is now being paid for the freedom cars have bestowed on us, we are none the less manufacturing them in ever greater numbers. Autopia is the first book to explore the culture of the motor car in the widest possible sense. Featuring newly commissioned essays by writers, critics, historians, artists and film-makers, as well as reprinting key texts, it examines the effect of the car throughout the world, including the USA, Western and Eastern Europe, Japan, China, Cuba, India and South Africa. In this book the car is treated neither as a technological fetish object nor as an instrument of danger. Instead, it is examined as a hugely important determinant of 20th-century culture, neither wholly good nor an unmitigated disaster, and certainly endlessly fascinating. Contributors include Michael Bracewell, Ziauddin Sardar, Al Rees, Martin Pawley, Donald Richie and Peter Hamilton. Key texts by Marshall Berman, Jane Jacobs, Roland Barthes, Marc Augé and others.

"Okay, so your budget's ... "challenged." Good thing you're swimming in creativity! But how far can a whole lot of creativity and not much cash take you? Far." "And if you need proof - not to mention a mighty dose of inspiration - here's an inside look at the stand-out promotion work of 39 design studios. You'll see more than 150 low-budget (and no-budget) pieces that made clients stop and take notice, including distinctive identity systems; self-promotions that take an unconventional approach; unforgettable humorous and witty self-promotions; special promotions for holidays and other special occasions; pro bono work that does the designer good, too; and creative collaborations between designers and other professionals - such as photographers, illustrators, copywriters and printers." "You'll learn how each of these designers (from big name creatives to bright new talents) came up with a strong concept and turned it into a powerful, low-cost promotion. Plus you'll find costs and quantities of pieces (and how the budget was kept in line) ... as well as lots of ideas for making your high-ingenuity investments pay off."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
