The chaise-longue by Le Corbusier, the radio by Rams, the chair by Eames; designers make things into cult objects and become icons themselves. But who knows which coupe was designed by Frua, which is limousine by Engel, which wagon by Opron?

For a long time, car design was considered to be anonymous. The designers stood in the shadow of the design's perception, even though their designs can be found on the roads in millions. This richly illustrated book captures the origin of a profession. It maps the development of car design based on a comprehensive introduction and the career biographies of over 200 selected designers contributing to cars and many different associated products in the USA, Europe, and Japan between 1900 and 2000.
