Traction Avant Citroen - Car Book


Product Description

Traction Avant Citroen - Car book Discover this magnificent work in honour of the legendary Citroen Traction. Very early on, Andre Citroen was driven by a desire to keep his company on the cutting edge. He decided to create an immensely innovative small car: the front-wheel-drive car, or the Traction Avant. The Traction was long the pride and joy of Citroen. From 1934 to 1957, over 700,000 models were constructed, and several generations of French people chose it in all its versions. In 2017, the Citroen Traction Avant celebrated 60 years since the end of production. The anniversary was an incredible chance to celebrate this timeless car with a beautiful book that includes 70 models photographed and discussed for the first time in meticulous detail. From veteran Traction fanatics to general car enthusiasts, all readers will be enchanted by this car that now makes up part of our national heritage. Packed with images of cars from private collections, both French and foreign, this work gives readers the chance to dive into over 300 unique, contemporary images, made exclusively for this book. The cars have been impeccably maintained in their original condition, or perfectly restored to bring back their original allure. The beautiful photographs were taken by Leonard de Serres and Rose Ayliffe in both large scale and close-up format. Over the course of the book, they showcase the design of the bodywork, paint colour, refined seats, and finish on the accessories. A historical introduction by Anne Bony on 1930s design helps readers understand the birth of the car in creative context. In stores from 19 April 2017. Authors: Olivier de Serres,Leonard de Serres, Rose Ayliffe and Anne Bony. Photographs: Leonard de Serres and Rose Ayliffe. Editor: Emmanuelle Gaillard, Le Faune Editeur.
