A Is for Allegro: An Alphabet of Curious Cars by Roy McCarthy



ISBN: 9781911042679 Category: Tags: ,


A nostalgic A-Z of the most special and well-remembered 60s 70s and 80s cars with stylish illustrations accompanied by warm humorous personal memories. Designer and illustrator Roy McCarthy explores the cars that made a big impression on him in his younger days from the sludge-coloured disappointing Austin Allegro his father brought home in 1975 to the Ford Zephyr he coveted from afar on the way to school. The evocative colourful illustrations form a visual feast of late 20th-century driving featuring all the cars drivers of a certain age will remember: the Hillman Imp the Triumph Dolomite the Opel Kadett the Renault 5 and even the lowly Yugo 45 – a whole alphabet’s worth in fact! The perfect gift for anyone who’s ever owned been driven around in or hankered after one of these motoring icons. Word count: 150
