Evocative images of abandoned classics
Forgotten, sad, but still beautiful
Rusting in peace
Reminds us of a time when cars where created with more personality
Highlights the rapid technological development that left these cars behind
Features photos of many much-loved US models
Excellent companion piece to Veloces title, The Fate of the Sleeping Beauties
Sleeping Beauties USA honours rusted and forgotten automotive treasures that have been found parked alongside the highways of America, waiting to be discovered again. Rather than showcasing typically brilliant, highly rebuilt show queens, the book instead explores the transience and inherent beauty of a cars life, captured through stunning and evocative photography.
'The pictures are excellent, the colours vibrant and the captions are well written and researched.'
"If you like abandoned wrecks and striking scenery, then this book, printed in full colour on art paper, seems good value for the price." The Automobile
"Lying besides highways, in creeks and behind barns, some are haunting, some melancholy, while some look tantalisingly recoverable." Classic Cars
