This book was released to coincide with the exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. Perhaps more than any other city, life in Los Angeles is predicated on the automobile. Indeed, it has shaped almost every aspect of the cultural, political, social and physical history of Southern California from the early twentieth century to the present day.

Retrofuturism explores the work of J Mays who is known for his reinterpretation of the Volkswagen Beetle, his Ford Thunderbird, and his general ability to capture the profound emotional connection people have to their cars. It elucidates Mays's position as one of today's finest and most innovative designers, and thoroughly explores the compelling hallmark aesthetic in his designs.
