I just got the books The Automotive Mascot , The Automotive Mascot "Encore", Faith Catalog reprint and Ronson Catalog reprint from the Author, James Colwill.
The books are all gems, a treasure trove of mascots that have you engrossed in them the moment you turn the cover. The author has used all new photos to convey some of the most tantalizing mascots you ever did see. I always have trouble getting through the first book because there are so many beautiful mascots that I want in my collection, but one thing the books do is get me more anxious to aquire more mascots for my collection.
Books are irreplacable knowledge that every collector needs and now I can say that I have an incredible collection of books that spur me on. The Worldwide books are hardcover and worth every cent, a good deal from the author himself.
The Faith Catalog and Ronson reprints are Art Deco masterpieces as the art is all quite incredible. The covers show the age of the originals the author worked with, and spent considerable time so that each page has been cleaned and presented beautifully, the pictures within are mesmerizing and beautiful, well worth the small price for the reprints.
The books really are food for fantasy as they put you in a fantasy world where these rare and beautiful mascots rule, and you are their subject, you sense their immense worth as icons of the Art Deco age, - they had their chance at life and now are collected by collectors who realize their value as Art Deco Masterpieces.
The cover of the first book is an image that many know as sorrow or grief. There are graves in France with the same image lingering at the graves cast in marble and bronze. Truly beautiful.
I recommend these books, the knowledge within slowly gets ingrained in your sense, just from viewing these amazing mascots.
