Automotive Art Project - Book Reviews

automotive art project book

My Car Heaven, February 2022

'Inspired by the impressive fleet of classic cars owned by motoring specialist Claude Nahum. Indeed, the entrepreneur’s ‘N’ collection is something to behold. For the first time, twenty-five of his vehicles are presented in the maverick style of six talented artists. The output is 150 incredible works of art, reflecting the extraordinary engineering craftsmanship of numerous elusive vehicles.'

Practical Classics, October 2021

'The artworks are superb and beautifully presented, too.'

Classic Car Weekly, July 2021

'This is a suitably expensive book for an equally eye-wateringly valuable collection of cars - the N Collection - which comprises a group of 25 racing greats, including the Ford Lotus Cortina, Ford GT and Jaguar E-type. The owner of the collection, Claude Nahum, has commissioned six very different artists to create an image of each car, leading to 150 works of art, plus a few photos of each car and some history. The artworks are terrific, with each artist's style consistent through the book, varying from thoroughly modern lino-prints to expressive oil paintings, and plenty in-between. An A3 hardback with high-quality production, the 208-page book is limited to 500 copies.'

Ferrari Owners Club Magazine, July 2021

'Produced to typical (very high) Porter Press standards, Automotive Art Project is decent value at £100, but don't buy it thinking that it's packed with information. As the title suggests, this is a book hat's for looking at rather than reading, and as long as you buy it on that basis you shouldn't  be disappointed.' Richard Dredge

The Historic Racing News

'In all honesty this book didn’t really have much appeal when it was first mooted. It seemed unstructured and, frankly, a bit pointless. How wrong could we be/ It is a fabulous thing!'

'Perhaps this is in some ways the archetypal motoring coffee-table book. It is both interesting and very beautiful and the production quality fully justifies its price. It will be a fitting addition to any collection.'

Classic & Sports Car 

'Inside the large, beautiful book are captivating interpretations of Nahum's 25 cars by the likes of Tim Layzell, Guy Allen and Anna-Louise Felstead. Ranging from Jean-Jaques Francois' barn-find renders to Felstead's tongue-in-cheek nudes, each raises a smile. While it will no doubt be of the greatest value to Nahum, the 150 works should delight the 500 buyers of this intriguing limited edition.' GM
