Format: Paperback
I bought both C. Zinn's books "Javelin Photo Archive..." and "AMX Photo Archive...", as well as Patrick Fosters's "AMC Performance Cars..Photo Archive". Although it's good to see more books on AMC cars, I was dissapointed, and not expecting these books to all be in Black & White only. Not a trace of color! Although I do feal that the two books by C. Zinn, have more of a purpose in the "concept to Reality" theme, rather than just being picture books. Given the price of these paperback books, and because it was not obvious from the Amazon description, I thought it was a good idea to at least let others know of this fact. If you like color, this book is not gong to have any. Try Larry Mitchell's "AMC Muscle Cars", or, "AMX &Javelin Gold Portfolio".

Bottom line: Appreciate the effort put in the concept to reality theme, but a little disappointing for me. It would have been a great book if it was in color for a little more money.

Format: Paperback
For the first time in AMC history, Chris Zinn has brought to print a pictorial history of the development of the AMX. These rare photographs and comments accompanying them present the reader with a unique insider view of what actually happened at AMC. Chris Zinn has spent years collecting both the pictures and the oral history of the process from the individuals who made it all happen. This publication is a must for the AMX enthusiast, as well as for any person with a casual interest in this unique car. Through the pictures and comments, Chris Zinn shares information which has not been brought to the attention of the hobbyist or the public before. I take great pride in recommending this special publication to all who are interested in what happened at American Motors Corporation to bring the AMX to fruition.

His love of the AMC AMX really shows in this well written book. I've been in the hobby for years and I learned new things about the design process the car went thru to become reality. This is a wonderful documentary of this unique car. An excellent book. His companion Javelin book is also a must have for any AMX/Javelin fan.

Format: Paperback
I was researching automotive stylist Norbert C. Ostrowski and discoved that some of his sketches are featured in this book under the misspelling "Ostrouski." His sketches are shown on pages 10 and 96. Many of the photographs were taken at the Plymouth Road studios of American Motors Corporation. There is no index nor table of contents in the book which would have improved the book's value as a reference for those researching automobile styling. The author, Zinn, also wrote "Javelin Photo Archive: From Concept to Reality" which also shows the work of Ostrowski / Ostrouski. Javelin Photo Archive From Concept to Reality For American Motors fans, another book that was done for the school market is "What Happens in a Car Factory" by Arthur Shay.What Happens in a Car Factory.
