Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book is a must-have for any automotive or art fan." (Airbrush Action 2015-11-20)

"This is a wonderful book with many gorgeous illustrations of the cutaways." (David O'Malley IPMS/USA 2015-11-23)

"Kimble's book is generously illustrated with his drawings, of course, but he also tells the stories behind the drawings, how he came to be contracted to do them, and the research he did to be able to make them as accurate as possible. If you're an automotive nerd like I am, this is great stuff." (Ol' Skool Rodz 2015-11-30)

"Trust us, you'll savor this feast." (Hemmings Classic Car 2016-01-07)

"If you're a fan of automotive art, this is a must-own." (The News Wheel 2016-06-20)

Gold Medal Winner and Best of Books Winner (2015 IAMC Award Winner 2016-08-03)

"... the cutaway illustrations will dazzle you." (Mark J. McCourt Hemmings Classic Car 2016-09-12)

From the Back Cover

For enthusiasts reading magazines such as Motor Trend, Road & Track, and others, David Kimble is no stranger. His brilliant cutaway artwork has been gracing the pages of those publications for years. Whether he illustrated engines, transmissions, full-car chassis, sports cars, race cars, or classics, his cutaway artwork revealed, in excruciating detail, things that a camera lens could never capture.

In

David Kimble’s Cutaways: The Techniques and the Stories Behind the Art, Kimble reveals the secrets, techniques, procedures, and dedication to craft that is required to produce these amazing illustrations. He covers the step-by-step procedures while producing fresh artwork for this book featuring a McLaren Can-Am car as well as a vintage Harley-Davidson. Although the procedures covered here are unique to Kimble, and pretty much a pipe dream to mere mortals, this book provides an inside look into how he does it. Also included are the stories and tales of how it all started, traveling the world to illustrate cars, behind the scenes with manufacturers, the Corvette years, as well as a gallery of many other illustrations.

Never before has David Kimble provided a look into his cutaway "skunkworks," or shared the procedures for bringing these beautiful technical illustrations to life. This book is a must-have for any automotive or art fan.
