Butterfield Press is proud to announce Design and the Bristol Car by Dr. John D. Hobbs.

Design and the Bristol Car contains a description of the evolution of draughting techniques from the shipbuilding days, through aviation design and car design into the CAD-era, interspersed with the life story of Dudley Hobbs, chief designer at Bristol Cars from 1946 to 1976.

The second part of the book contains: Fascinating reports from the Bristol Aeroplane Company visits (by Dudley Hobbs) to Geneva, Lugano and Milan, the Paris and Geneva Motorshows and Carrozzeria Touring / A critical appraisal of the work of Dudley Hobbs by a current car designer / The pre-war history of the BMW 326, 327 and 328, which might be described as the first Bristols.
