Very Good/No Dustjacket Issued. 468 Pages 9781840467789 Sir Alec Issigonis lived his life in parallel with the rise and decline of the British motor industry, becoming its first and only celebrity. He was the designer of the Morris Minor and the Mini, two of the most important British car designs of the 20th century.

Beautifully presented, including many of Issigonis' original sketches, as well as photographs of his personal life and his famous cars, this is an absorbing and highly acclaimed account of a gifted but complex man. Covers are a little worn and lightly stained.
