Three-book Set
Author-signed First Edition

Launch Offer Free shipping in EU, UK & USA on all BMW books


"I’m a BMW book collector. In fact, I don’t know of anyone who has more BMW books than I do. But this new set by Steve Saxty is the best BMW book(s) that exist. The writing is lively, the production values are worthy of art books, which they are, and the research is thorough. With the cooperation Steve got from BMW, this is, in essence, the official story of BMW Design, straight from the source. My highest recommendation, you must own these books. In case I haven’t been clear: These are the best books on BMW that have ever been written. There is nothing else like it and you should have a copy."

BMW Art by Design: Handmade custom jewel box containing book, custom-designed envelope containing 18 giclée art-quality prints

"The idea behind this book was simple enough: to pick out creative highlights from BMW Design’s archives from the 1970s to the present. 


I looked at thousands of design sketches while researching the BMW Behind the Scenes books and seeing so many marvelous pieces of art made me think that presenting a selection in an elegant book would be a perfect way of rounding out the set. My hope is that the images in these pages – and the accompanying giclée art-quality prints – speak for themselves.

To accompany the images you’re about to see, I asked the designers to tell the stories behind their work. In the deliberately brief text, there’s also introduction to each designer and a snippet about the BMW they drew. 


I hope you find the selection a perfect way of relaxing with your favorite drink as you enjoy a rare insight into the artistic ability of leading car designers, and that the art prints find a home on your walls."
