"The Land Rover Scrapbook" celebrates the British motor industry's most enduring brand as it enters its Diamond Anniversary year. The work employs a fusion of product information, company records, personal memorabilia and design ephemera, much of it published for the first time, to bring to life the marque's colourful history. The lush pictorial data is interwoven with a rich historical and product narrative from former Land Rover manager and motoring journalist, Mike Gould. As a key member of Land Rover's sales, marketing and PR team for over 30 years, Gould is well-placed to offer fresh insights into the company's business policy and design decisions.His honesty, passion and genuine affection for Land Rover make this work a unique record not only of the marque but of the personalities and products that built the business. Quite simply, the "Land Rover Scrapbook" is essential reading for the millions of Land Rover owners worldwide anxious to explore their vehicle's pedigree. It is also an invaluable addition to the library of anyone with an interest in the motor industry. "The Land Rover Scrapbook" presents a unique perspective on a British automotive icon.

Format: Hardcover
This is not just another dull Land Rover reference book.

Mike Gould has a unique and very readable style; his book not only covers the history of Land Rover decade by decade but also includes a huge amount of associated information about the brand, the characters and background, even the elephant!

The book is beautifully presented in a large format style containing a huge number of high quality photographs and diagrams.

A superb read not just for the Land Rover enthusiast.

i purchased this book for my grandson 21st birthday as he is an landrover enthusiast. the book details the landrover from its early development up to the present time. plenty of great photos, with infromative reading. i had the pleasure of reading it before posting it off to him. he has since informed me that he is delighted with it, when we meet up later this year, i look forward to going through the book together, as we are both landrover geeks. i have ordered books from amazon before, and this book like all the others arrived on time and was in very good condition.

I bought this for my neighbour, who is a dear friend and always helping me out with my young children. He is the adventurous type and spends HOURS working on his Landrover. He loved this book, really loved it, and keeps wanting to share bits of it. I have to say that I have no interest in Landrovers but can appreciate that it is a lovely book. Very well put together with interesting historical facts and some great photos.
