The documentation of history’s finest vehicles is an important affair, so when it comes to the nature of said documentation, it’s only natural that one of the automotive industry’s most revered publishers would accept the challenge. Gestalten, a petrol-powered outfit hailing from the close-cropped boroughs of New York City, has made it a point to encroach upon the auto world’s most prolific cars, resulting in an amalgamation of awe-inspiring photos, stories, and nostalgia.
In the outfit’s most recent publication, “Beautiful Machines,” Gestalten’s passion for history’s most incredulous automotive platforms has been put to paper, giving readers a deeply-personal introduction to the minds, and stories behind each. Inside, you’ll find a collection of photos and typography, laying bare the past and lineage of cars like the Maserati Ghibli, Lamborghini Miura, Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 Stradale, and Porsche 918 Spyder. As expected, Gestalten’s artistic approach to each can be described as unequivocally elegant, outlining the innovation, ambition, and beauty of automotive design in a way that few can rightfully perceive. If your passion for mechanical culture is ill unsated, head to Gestalten’s website, where ‘Beautiful Machines’ will be available for purchase sometime in October.
