**THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER** Magnus Walker is one of life's originals. Serial entrepreneur, fashion designer, TV presenter, motivational speaker and one of the world's most prolific Porsche collectors, the dreadlocked, tattooed hoarder of individual creativity is a very modern incarnation of success. Raised in the urban decay of Thatcher's Britain, Sheffield-born Magnus Walker left school with just two O levels and drifted for several years before buying a one-way ticket to America. Now, 30 years and three successful businesses later, by following his instincts, rejecting convention and pursuing his passions Magnus has succeeded against all the odds. Here, for the first time, is the full story of his journey from a Northern steel town to the bright lights of Hollywood, from a boy with little hope to an anti-establishment hero. Along the way we'll witness his potent combination of inspiration and graft, discover his motivations and his ambitions, and come to understand his philosophy and the keys to his success. Inspiring and exhilarating, URBAN OUTLAW is a compelling tale of succeeding through pure instinct and determination by a man who was brave enough to follow his own path.

Take a walk down memory lane . . . all 2,400-plus miles of it. With the dawn of the automobile age, droves of Americans could no longer resist the urge to head west. In 1926, one road began taking them there: Route 66. Starting in Chicago and running to Santa Monica, that road is profiled in this new flexibound edition of "Legendary Route 66," which highlights the sights along America's Main Street with more than 600 photographs of classic gas stations, motels, road signs, postcards, maps, and memorabilia. This unparalleled look at the Mother Road lets you get your kicks on Route 66 through each decade of its existence--from the point auto adventurers first started using this transcontinental route to the days when Okies made it the Dust Bowl road of flight to the 1950s-era tide of vacationers headed west seeking sun. You'll see Route 66 as it was in its heyday and as it is now, the neon glamour of yesterday versus the ghost towns of today. Route 66 historians Michael Karl Witzel and Gyvel Young-Witzel lead the journey, recounting the highway's history, its role in popular culture, and its demise. Along the way, they chronicle the rise, fall, and resurgence of many iconic Route 66 roadside stops, as well as profile many people with close ties to the Mother Road. With many never-seen-before photos, "Legendary Route 66" is a timeless tribute to the most beloved road in America.
The artwork in this book is the continuation of Quarnstrom's lifelong fascination with hot rods, dragsters, and custom cars, currently called Joyride Flatout. As the source of his earliest inspiration and having provided him with the raw materials for a lifetime of drawing, he revisits this subject matter often. These are the drawings he wanted to do when he was 12-years-old, but didn't have the skills to pull them off (some are drawings done when he was 12). The pioneers of wild style car design, Ed "Big Daddy" Roth and his contemporaries, were at the height of their powers as custom car designers, providing a panorama of challenges for thousands of aspiring pencil jockeys. They provoked, validated, and sustained his interest in the mechanical as art.
A century of history constitutes an important goal and is even more significant if a prestigious marque like Alfa Romeo is celebrating it. To pay due tribute to such a significant event is a unique and exclusive work of the Centenary, printed in a limited edition of only 999 copies, all numbered and enclosed in an elegant slipcase that carries the famous metal emblem of the centenarian on its front. Apart from its huge format, the refined binding and the paper on which it is printed, this official book prepared in collaboration with Alfa Romeo and destined to celebrate this historic event, is an ambitious project especially due to its contents and illustrations. As well as for the invaluable photographic Material provided by Alfa Romeo's Historic Motor Racing Documentation Centre Arese and a Number of images contributed by the Giorgio Nada Editore Archive, the Official Centenary book contains the results of a series of sessions carried out in the Alfa Museum specifically for this volume. A number of models in clothing inspired bythe styles of this century have posed next to the most significant cars in Alfa's history, creating in that way a fascinating "filrouge" between the car and its period. The P2, which won the 1925 Grand Prix World Championship, and the current 8C Spider are the stars of two additional photographic sessions that took place adhoc on Alfa's historic track at Balocco. To tell this long and distinguished history, which has written a chapter of extraordinary importance in the technical and sporting annals of the Italian car, some of the most important names in motoring and motorsport journalism have contributed, as have men who lived the Alfa Romeo experience in person. This official Alfa Romeo Centenary book is a work of indisputable prestige, a 'must have' for all enthusiasts and students of the Alfa Romeo marque
