9781845846015: Inside the Rolls-Royce & Bentley Styling Department 1971 to 2001
Revue de presse :

This is a well produced book with good illustrations ... to anyone with an interest in either marque, this book represents a new insightful approach from an interestingly different viewpoint, with some excellent renderings and illustrations along the way. --BDC Review

Books by stylists are fairly rare, and for such a famous company, comparatively little has been written in any context about the Rolls Royce and Bentley operation at Crewe, so Graham Hull's book is doubly welcome ... A fascinating account of how two of the most famous marques in the world were designed and built effectively by a cottage industry and one which, thanks to the needs-must school of ingenuity, survived into the twenty-first century. --Kieron Fennelly - Freelance

A superb book! --Oldtimer Magazine/Dreamcar Magazine

a really interesting read that shows just how much goes on behind the scenes! --New Zealand Classic Car

A long overdue book by pretty much the only person who could have written it. --The Flying Lady

This is the most interesting book on Rolls-Royce and the development of the cars ever printed. That's all you need to know. Get it for yourself and buy a copy for your buddy too. You won't be able to put it down. --The Modern Car

A long overdue book by pretty much the only person who could have written it. --The Flying Lady

Funny, touching and immensely readable this book by Graham Hull offers a rare human glimpse into the pressured world behind the cold if starkly beautiful shiny metal exteriors of two of the world s most fought-over mechanical masterpieces. Thoroughly recommended. Lavishly illustrated and jolly good value for money. --Big End

A long overdue book by pretty much the only person who could have written it. --The Flying Lady

A highly interesting insider report. --British Classics

A long overdue book by pretty much the only person who could have written it. --The Flying Lady

Présentation de l'éditeur :

From his time as part of a small design team working on the Silver Spirit/Mulsanne, to becoming Chief Stylist at Crewe, Graham Hull peels back the curtain on  an idiosyncratic institution. Throwing light on a factory motivated as much by pride as the bottom-line, all the projects - whether production, special commission, or aborted designs - are covered, and the unique styling process is explored. This styling process was a key element in the resurgence of the dormant Bentley marque, that, with its fortunes on the rise, became the star of the Geneva Motor Show, attracting commissions from wealthy enthusiasts for totally customized  vehicles. Founding fathers Royce and Rolls melded engineering with marketing, but as marketing took over the union fractured. The drama of how this British institution was divided between BMW and VW, and how aesthetic design (never cherished by British management) became increasingly recognized, is fundamental to the story. The bewildering number of projects during the 1990s is a genuine eye-opener. and a phenomena that demanded unique peoples, skills, and facilities.

Description du livre Veloce Publishing, 2014. État : New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: A unique and personal account of young designer's journey after joining that most prestigious of marques, Rolls-Royce. Sometimes eccentric, often humorous, the workings of this uniquely British institution during a period of immense change are described in detail. Generously supported by previously unseen illustrations, the author's story, from designer to Chief Stylist, pulls back the curtain concealing an idiosyncratic institution, motivated as much by pride, as the bottom-line.
