Although truck efficiency and performance are priorities for operators and drivers, their pride in their vehicles shows itself in the way that so many are customised and decorated. Ferdy De Martin & Xavier Stefaniak have selected 29 examples of currently working trucks whose decoration is an art form, ranging from the delicate and subtle to transport rococo - a phantasmagoria of images in bright colours. The imaginative designs, high standard of craftsmanship and superb finish create unique vehicles that are immediately recognisable and attract devoted followers. Over 250 fantastic photographs are accompanied by concise captions that are both enthusiastic and illuminating; the authors do full justice to the trucks. The text is in English with synopses in French, and each truck is presented with a number of photographs to show off both the overall designs as well as the details of exteriors and interiors. This is a truly international selection of machines, with eighteen of the twenty-nine trucks featured from Europe, eight from North America and three from the UK. Original manufacturers include Volvo, Scania, Mercedes and Peterbilt.,
Swiss national Ferdy De Martin has been in the truck industry since 1980, including ten years experience as an international driver for relief agencies. He works as a diesel engine engineer, and runs www.TOPRUN.ch, one of the most popular internet truck sites.
