Item description for Sleeping Beauties by Herbert W. Hesselmann Halwart Schrader...

Behind the walls of an old farm somewhere in France, several dozen antique classic cars had been neglected for decades, enjoying a kind of 100-year sleep. Surrounded by a profusion of plants and practically forgotten by their owner, no one knew of the collection until, in 1983, permission was granted for it to be photographed. The commission fell to one of Europe's leading photographers, Herbert W. Hesselmann, who promisednever to disclose the identity of the owner or location of the collection, and the story made headlines all over the world. This haunting compilation expertly captures the mystery and drama of the vintagecar collection of the century, and is accompanied with commentary by Halwart Schrader. Although the collection shown here no longer exists, the untouched patina of these cars still exerts a powerful and mysterious fascination, inviting viewers to explore a forgotten era.

Reviews - What do customers think about Sleeping Beauties?

Overpriced, Disappointing  Apr 5, 2008
Not up to expectations. No real information on the cars themselves, or even captions for the pictures. Printed on dull paper instead of glossy, the whole book just doesn't deliver. Sort of neat pictures, but after 20 minutes you've read the entire book and looked at all the pictures (many of which are repeated in slightly diferent sizes or angles), and that's it. Up on the shelf it goes. Not recommended.
