Synopsis:

In this new view on the Citroen story, automotive/ aviation writer and design specialist Lance Cole investigates not just the details of the cars of Citroen, but the aeronautical and cultural origins that lay behind Cirtoen's form and function.  The book digs deep into the ethos of Automobiles Citroen to create a narrative on one of the greatest car manufacturers in history.  Using interviews, translations, archive doucments and specially-commissioned photographs, the Citroen journey is cast in a fresh perspective.  It explains in detail the influences upon Citroen design: Voisin, lefebrve, Bertoni, Boulanger, Mages, Opron and recent Citroen designers such as Coco, Blakeslee and Soubirou.  As well as all the men of the great period of 1920s - 1970s expansion, cites less well-known names of Citroen's French engineering, design, and influence such as Cayla, Gerin, Giret, Harmand, Dargeent and others, to give a full picture of Citroen heritage. Provides in-depth analysis of all major Citroen models with an engineering and design focus.Profiles key individuals and cars up to the present day and Citroen's 'DS'-branded resurgence.Features many newly commissioned photographs, rare archive drawings and interviews with Citroen owners.Researched amongst leading Citroen experts and restorers.
