Automotive Art - part 1

Note: Same blog, but after 6 years I thought it was time for a little revamp of the design. I think this is easier to read and to navigate. I hope you like it.

This next series features automotive art and illustration beginning in the 1880s, in the very early days of motoring, through to the mid-1960s. Mainly in poster form, that either advertised motor cars and car-related products, or promoted motor-racing events like Grand Prix.

It features many famous and iconic brands, as well as some that have fallen by the wayside. Over the series it's interesting to see the development and change in tastes with regard to the design and artwork.
