Product Description


The recently published Von Dutch: The Art, The Myth, The Legend comes closer than anything written to uncovering the truth about hot rodding's prominent pinstriper and most controversial character. --Rod and Custom Magazine,

You don't have to be a car junkie to get caught up in ... the animated artwork shown throughout this book.

As well researched as the book is, it's doubtful anyone can unravel the mystery. However, this book doesn't expect to, and that helps make it the best book that has ever been written on Von Dutch, and probably always will be. --Old Cars Weekly

Von Dutch 30 Aug. 2005
By J. Strick - Published on
Format: Hardcover
A very well written book by respected automotive writer Pat Ganahl. It is the life and work of the interesting and slightly crazy early auto paint striper Von Dutch. Includes some great photographs. If you are interested in old school automotive customizing I would recomend this book.

Von Dutch 20 Mar. 2006
By R. Marquez - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The pictures of the book are awesome. Von Dutch is truly talented and this book tells you the history behind the artwork. If you are a car lover and an artist it is the perfect book for you. Reading the history and motivation behind such designs is great.

Well done history on a true artisan 6 Dec. 2005
By John O. Morton - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Pat Ganahl has taken a very difficult subject, by the name of "Von Dutch" aka Kenneth Howard into a collage of history, photos and stories. There are many people who claim to have "known Von Dutch" [1929-1992]. Most just "used" him and his "reputation."

The most important photo of the book is on page 171 (lower right), taken by Pat in Dutch's final years. . . Kenneth Howard could be compared to Da Vinci in many ways, he was an excellent craftsman who loved to "put people on."

von Dutch Primer 29 Sept. 2007
By exoficio - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is a solid introduction to von Dutch, whether or not one is familiar with the legend. The work spotlights a specific time in the life of the artist, and manages to also uncover some history of the enigma that is von Dutch. This book is a fascinating recount of an historic summer and is a valuable addition to any motorsports library.
