Harrod Blank's New Book
Art Cars: The Cars, the Artists, the Obsession, the Craft

Whether you have never heard of art cars before now or you have several of them parked in your driveway every day, Harrod's new book is for you. This book offers 144 pages of wisdom, wit and insight on the art car movement written by one who has seen it all.

Harrod continues his tradition of great work by including dozens of artists, hundreds of photographs and even a chapter for those who want to join the movement with their very own creation.

Meet Harrod in Houston on Wednesday April 24th and get him to sign your copy of this wonderful book. He will be at the River Oaks Book Store (3270 Westheimer (713) 520-0061) from 5pm to 7 pm.

From the back cover:

Have you ever seen a truck with 1,480 spoons riveted onto it, a car with a working waterfall, or a motorcycle that resembles a hamburger?

Well-known author, filmmaker, and art car visionary Harrod Blank takes you on a tour of more than 100 fantastic vehicles that have been turned into genuine works of art as intriguing as they are striking. Are they symbols of personal freedom, rebellious inventions, or fantasies made into reality?

Pore over more than 300 lavish photographs, as you learn the fascinating stories of the artists behind the designs.
