These days, there are more and more ways to explore the world—be it on two wheels or four. Gestalten’s books on everything wheeled are perfect for those who love nothing more than the open road. Some showcase the pioneers living out of their cars; others feature custom bikes and their builders. Kick it up a gear with our selection of books about wheels.
Better than the original and a long way from factories and assembly lines. Handcrafted, radical, and subversive, these custom cars are designed and made by a small number of specialists around the globe.
Bicycles are the new cars. Whether custom-made, sleek, playful, or electric, they are not only means of transportation but also have cultural value. Velo 3rd Gear introduces the world’s best bikes along with their makers and related products.
Many of us long to get away from it all in the great outdoors. Converted vans, trucks, and other vehicles are increasingly popular means of escape that provide temporary homes amid isolated terrain, sandy dunes, and endless skies.
The life of urban nomads places new demands on cities, residences, and working spaces. This book presents temporary architecture, flexible room and furniture concepts, and tools for a generation that feels at home in every corner of the globe.
