|In this, your guide to outstanding truck decoration in Western Europe and the United States, you will see a wide range of approaches and styles. Eighteen of the twenty-nine trucks featured are from Europe, eight are from North America and three are from the UK.
In each case you are presented with a number of views of the vehicle to show the overall designs as well as the details of exteriors and interiors. The authors’ text is enthusiastic and illuminating. Main sections are in English and they also provide brief summaries in French.
