A Brief Review: Drawn to Speed : The Automotive Art of John Lander (McFarland, 2015)

I just came across this book by chance as I was searching my library's catalog. Since I had access to an electronic version, I started to leaf through the pages, although I am far from finished with it. The book features the images drawn by John Lander; however, the real treat for me were the short explanations that accompanied each of the artistic representations.

What a wonderful set of stories about the cars depicted, and particularly the people she where integral to the cars! The narratives are a treasure-chest of personal reminiscences and accounts that paint a human side to enthusiasts, race drivers, and owners who were at the heart of the history of the sports car.  Whatever you do, don't miss this book!
