Auto Erotica

A Grand Tour through Classic Car Brochures of the 1960s to 1980s

By Jonny Trunk. Edited by Damon Murray, Stephen Sorrell. Foreword by Bob Stanley.

Auto Erotica

A car book like no other, Auto Erotica offers a nostalgic look at vintage cars through the literature, leaflets and pamphlets that sold them to us

Over the course of its 240 pages, Auto Erotica covers the gamut of motoring in Britain during the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s through rare ephemeral booklets full of unusual graphic ideas and concepts. Their fabulous photography, dazzling color charts, daring typography, strange foldouts and inspiring styles symbolize the automobile aspirations of generations of Britons.
Assembled by nostalgia enthusiast Jonny Trunk—author of The Music Library and Own Label—the book is also packed full of era-defining classic cars, from those we love to those we can’t remember. Expect fast Fords, the XJS, the TR8, MGs, Minis, Maxis, Renaults, Beemers, VWs, Vivas, Citroëns, DeLoreans and a whole lot more: amazing motorcars from the past, and even some from the future, as you've never seen them before.
Jonny Trunk is a London-based artist, collector, broadcaster, writer and archivist whose work is centered around nostalgia. In 1995, Trunk founded Trunk Records, specializing in film scores, old advertising jingles, art, sexploitation and kitsch releases. Trunk’s previous publications include Wrapper’s Delight, The Music Library, Own Label and Wobbly Sounds.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Jonathan Bell

There is graphic brilliance within, a rich palette of colours unlike anything on today’s roads, as well as a heart-tuggingly straightforward evocation of the desire and romance of the open road.

In 'Auto Erotica,' flash back to a time when cars were "way, way, more sexy"

In 'Auto Erotica,' flash back to a time when cars were "way, way, more sexy"

This week, Fuel Publishing releases Auto Erotica: A Grand Tour through Classic Car Brochures of the 1960s to 1980s, another vintage deep-dive assembled by nostalgia enthusiast Jonny Trunk. “This book looks back to a pre-digital period, when designers had pencils and fashioned car models out of clay,” Trunk writes. “It’s a time when car companies took risks and inventors could go a bit mad over a drawing in the sand. Engines failed all the time, you needed a jump-start when it got a bit cold and then you had to de-ice the locks and radiator too. There were no electric windows (well hardly), no sat navs, no central locking, no airbags, no power steering, no alarms, no parking cameras, no computer analysis, no dashboard screens, no intermittent wipers, no proper heating. You might have a cigarette lighter, a rev counter and a terrible radio if you were lucky. These were cars you had to drive—and suffer slightly while you were doing it. I’m not saying it was a better time, but the cars were way, way, more sexy.” continue to blog
