Merchant Motors: The Art of RM Merchant

For almost 50 years RM Merchant has produced stunning designs for automobiles. What sets Merchant apart from his contemporaries is that he creates new automobile designs that emulate the styles and techniques of the great automobile stylists and illustrators of the 1920s and 1930s--designers like Alan Leamy, Gordon Buehrig, Harley Earl, George Lawson, and Raymond Loewy. This book pulls together for the first time 245 of Merchant's favorite drawings. Hardcover with dust cover. 256 pages. You do not need a Paypal account to purchase through Paypal using a credit card.

Occasionally, RM Merchant draws an actual production model from the 1920s or 1930s, but as it might have been presented as a conceptual drawing. Similarly, he creates conceptual drawings for variations of production models such as adding a 4-door convertible to a line that did not include that body style. Still other drawings are created as prototypes for new models in an automobile line, retaining the "look" of the manufacturer but adding Merchant's own ideas as to how the line might evolve. Most drawings, however, are created entirely out of the imagination of RM Merchant.

RM Merchant also creates vignettes placing his automobile designs in the types of settings typically portrayed in automobile catalogs and advertisement of the 1920 and 1930s.

This book pulls together for the first time 245 of Merchant's favorite drawings.
