Porsche by Design Seducing Speed by Ken Gross, Hardcover, Brand NewithShrink Wrap
Porsche by Design: Seducing Speed, by Ken Gross and Barbara Wiedermann, Hardcover, 2014 Brand new in shrink wrap. MUST HAVE FOR A PORSCHE ENTHUSIAST! The distinctive viewpoints of the thirteen contributing authors - from the driver's seat of a 917 at Le Mans to the helm of the design offices in Zuffenhausen - bring the story of Porsche design alive. First and only exhibition in a US fine art museum to focus on the design legacy of Porsche. Publisher: North Carolina Museum of Art Foundation (February 1, 2014). Product Dimensions: 10.6 x 0.9 x 11.9 inches. For its Porsche by Design: Seducing Speed exhibition of fall of 2014, the North Carolina Museum of Art could have simply produced a straightforward catalog that explained the significance of the cars on display and offered a bit of context. Instead, the editors, Ken Gross (who was also the guest curator) and Barbara Wiedemann, imagined something far more ambitious. A roll call of top writers contributed chapters to a 176-page volume that roams broadly through Porsche's history, including its cultural contributions. Beautiful photography, creative use of the archival material and a highly attractive layout designed by Ms. Wiedemann elevate the effort far above what a mere show catalog might have imparted to readers. The catalog is illustrated with exquisite photography by Michael Furman, Peter Harholdt, and Art Howard, as well as remarkable images and posters from the Porsche Museum Archives in Stuttgart. This item is in the category "Books & Magazines\Books".
