5 of 5 Visions in Design by Paolo Martin, with Gautam Sen February 7, 2023
Reviewer: Branko Radovinovic from Zurich, Zurich Switzerland  
A beautiful book about this genius of a designer. Not much is known about him. This beautifully produced book (like all DW books) will fill that gap. An absolute highlight are the many fascinating pictures, most of which you have never seen before. And as always, the text, co-authored with Gautam Sen.
Every car design fan should get this book.

3 of 5 Below my expectations January 16, 2023
Reviewer: Matthias Schulze from Germany  
After the books about Gandini and Tjaarda by the same author my expectations on Sem‘s book on Paolo Martin were pretty high. Too high actually than this book is not much more than a catalogue of Martin‘s work. There is very little information about the man himself and on his intentions when developing a design.

Also quite a lot of pictures are used two times in this book.

5 of 5 Full of anecdotes and pictures January 14, 2023
Reviewer: Julien Mazerolle from Paris, Europe France  
I have not read the whole book yet (around 1/3). However, as other books from Gautem Sen (I bought the Lamborghini and Gandini books), it is very well documented and full of anecdotes.
I love the anecdote on sharpening the pencils at Bertone...
