Advertising British Cars of the '50s

by Heon Stevenson. GT Foulis, £12.99.

It seems you can get books published on any subject these days.

This contains nothing more than 85 reproductions of advertisements from the 1950s for British cars, plus a five-page introduction. The latter is the best part of a book for which I can see no point, unless to please those who draw up such advertising material. Who wished to be reminded of these pre-war British vehicles as the purveyors wanted us to see them? WB
