This is a must have for anyone that want to get into the automotive design or is already in the 'business' it's not a how-to book but a great source of inspiration and awesome insight into the workflow of Daniel Simon. Highly recommended.

Packed with spectacular illustrations and sketches, this book will be interesting not only for industrial designers or artists, but for any admirer of science fiction. With all concepts set in the same universe, it is not only food for the eyes, but a quite interesting read as well.

Format: Paperback
Daniel Simon is a master when it comes to designing & rendering futuristic vehicles. Not only are the finished illustrations superb but his sketches are also nicely done. A great book to see how a vehicle design is developed. Well worth buying if you are a fan of concept design.
