In much the same way that architecture, interior design, and fashion can tell us a lot about the hopes and fears of the time they’re made in, concept cars can illustrate the mood of an era. So posits the incredibly fun coffee table book Fast Forward: The World’s Most Unique Cars.

This oversized hardcover book from the German publisher Gestalten boasts 288 pages that survey cars from 1950s and beyond – some of which were never built, and others that only were released in limited series. The experimental nature of the cars covered in this book bring in to starker contrast the design philosophy of the age they were built in – making each page in this book fun to pour-over again and again. But more than just offering up great, color photos of these automotive rarities, the book contains interviews and sketches by the designers who dreamt these futuristic vehicles. A great holiday pick for the gear-head.
