Excellent book on the oddball futuristic transport designer Colani. Despite his name Colani is a German citizen of Kurdish descent, though a lot of his work was for Italian car manufacturers. Though a prolific furniture and industrial designer his most known work is within the automobile industry, where his futuristic and often outlandish designs have seen him occupy the position of both insider and outsider. A true eccentric, how he got funding for anything is a wonder.
