Shifting Gear, design, innovation and the Australian car celebrates some of this country's iconic vehicles as sophisticated objects of art and design. From Australia's earliest steam-and-petrol driven automobiles to specialised racing and twenty-first-century concept cars, Shifting Gear reveals the designers and the stories behind each model's development. Written by Harriet Edquist and David Hurlston, this beautifully illustrated volume records a successful local enterprise spanning more than 100 years. At a critical moment in Australia's automotive industry, Shifting Gear reflects on its heyday, recognises the important contribution our designers have made to international car production and looks to Australia's future role in the global vehicle industry,
