In this new view on the Citroen story, automotive/ aviation writer and design specialist Lance Cole investigates not just the details of the cars of Citroen, but the aeronautical and cultural origins that lay behind Citroen's form and function. The book digs deep into the ethos of Automobiles Citroen to create a narrative on one of the greatest car manufacturers in history. Using interviews, translations, archive documents and specially-commissioned photographs, the Citroen journey is cast in a fresh perspective. It explains in detail the influences upon Citroen design: Voisin, Lefebrve, Bertoni, Boulanger, Mages, Opron and recent Citroen designers such as Coco, Blakeslee and Soubirou. As well as all the men of the great period of 1920s - 1970s expansion, cites less well-known names of Citroen's French engineering, design, and influence such as Cayla, Gerin, Giret, Harmand, Dargent and others, to give a full picture of Citroen heritage. AUTHOR: Having begun training in car styling with an interest in writing about design, Lance Cole was the winner of the 1983 Sir William Lyons/Guild of Motoring Writers Award. He became a motoring journalist but retained a focus on design. His early training was at Autocar and he has since been a feature writer, columnist, editor and contributor to major newspaper and magazines all over the world. 'Citroen - The Complete Story' is his fourth book for Crowood. Lance has been a dedicated owner of Citroens (and Saabs), and in 1994 present his idea for a new 2CV, which was featured in the motoring press. 329 colour photographs
