4.0 out of 5 stars History of hot rod art.
This book is a good introduction to the history of hot rod and custom art (Rat Fink, flying eyballs, pinstriping etc.) and the main three artists of the time. Plenty of colour illustrations and photos. A bit slim, but good all the same.

3.0 out of 5 stars Reveiw
This is a good book covering the history of Kustom painting covering mostly the American history of early car and cartoon painting.
Its got lots of pictures and good write up.
Not the book to buy if you are wanting to learn how to pinstripe or a reference for designs, but useful to see where it all started off.

This review is from: Kustom Kulture (Paperback)
Big paperback that bends. This is the intro to the nitro glycerine worlds of the big bangers, the men who sculpted the curves ad painstakingly painted their fibreglass and metal art sculptures. Then they stuck a V8 engine in the midst and watched them roar.

Ed Roth, Von Dutch and Robert Williams caught another side of the 60s pounded out in the rockabilly scuzx punk no chorders. They harnessed the feel to their hands and created cartoon vibrant worlds of ho holds barred.

Out popped the art of the working hands man, dipped in grease an forged in fire whilst the minds wandered on THC. Rat Fink, pinstriping, paintings, kit cars, t shirts, cycles were all transformed by their colletive imagination.

Dip in to see the true sounds of the 60's, the hum and throb of customised worlds
