This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: George Barris is undisputably the "King of the Kustomizers," the most phenomenal kustom car builder ever. Barris created some of the best known and iconic cars of the 20th century, inlcuding the original TV Batmobile, the Munsters Koach, Hirohata Merc, Ala Kart and countless other made-to-order vehicles for movies, TV, and for the private use of his celebrity clients. "King of the Kustomizers: The Art of George Barris" is the definitive work on a legend, over five years in the making. This is a massive volume containing nearly 500 pages jam-packed with never-before-seen photos and design illustrations, illuminating how Barris' creations helped redefine the automobile's place in American culture. Written by an all-star line-up of contributors, the book covers the full spectrum of George Barris' design genius. King of the Kustomizers is filled with untold stories and rare images from both Barris' famous and not-so-famous works. A generous selection of Barris tribute art -- some created especially for this volume -- is also included to showcase the enduring influence and legacy of the Barris Kustoms brand. This is one ride you don't want to miss!
