Fast cars? Yes, please. Carefree anarchy? Yes, please. Graphic design? Sure, why not throw that in.

Sven Voelker’s new book, Go Faster, details the almost haphazard early history of race car graphics. Through over 100 examples, Go Faster shows exactly how graphics help to modulate the look of the car. One plus of Voelker’s layout is the juxtaposition of decorated and blank cars, giving easy focus to the eventual punch of the graphic.
