"...this book is a knockout" —Doug Stokes, LA Car
"A gorgeous coffee table book with excellent photography, this concentrates on the rarer and more exotic end of the spectrum and features beautiful pictures of each car." —Auto Express
Ever heard of the Volkhart Sagitta? L’OEuf électrique, or the Stanley Steamer? If not, you are in for a beautiful surprise, 50 times over!
Often times the cars in this richly illustrated book were lost because the manufacturer ceased to exist, or because they were found on the bottom of Lake Maggiore after 75 years, like the Bugatti Brescia. Among the 50 beauties there are one-offs, concepts, trendsetters, and failures as well as cars of the rich and famous, from Marilyn Monroe to Clark Gable.

“One-offs, concepts, trendsetters, and failures, as well as cars of the rich and famous, from Marilyn Monroe to Clark Gable - they’re all present and correct in a fascinating new photo book.” - Ted Thornhill, Daily Mail

“The work majors on some beautiful photography by the brilliant Michel Zumbrunn, as each car is wonderfully illustrated with a set of high-quality studio images… As an introduction to rare cars, however, it does well, and would make a lovely present for those who are just starting out on their classic car journey.” - Classic and Sports Car
"Axel Catton and veteran automotive photographer Michel Zumbrunn were looking for a project they could work on during the pandemic. Along with publisher teNeues, they settled on the idea that became Lost Beauties: 50 Cars that Time Forgot, a new, lavishly illustrated coffee-table book that takes an in-depth look at influential, outlier, or just plain weird vintage vehicles that have all but vanished from the (general) public imagination." - Brett Berk, Car and Driver
"These are old school automobiles, and I think that thoughtfully-designed books (like this one) are better IRL. That said, however, this book is a knockout, and - even though only viewed (here) “electronically” - highly recommended." - Doug Stokes, LA Car
