Take a white-knuckle ride through a land of retinal delights.
Car culture - pinstriping, customizing and cartooning - is nearly synonymous with Southern California culture.
Kustom Kulture tells the story of the revved-up legends of the custom car cult of the '50s, '60s and '70s in Los Angeles. It's a fascinating look at how the custom car scene produced popular icons of American culture - and how that scene supercharged the artistic generation of today.

Synopsis:
Car culture - pinstriping, customising and cartooning - is nearly synonymous with Southern California culture. Kustom Kulture tells the story of the revved-up legends of the custom car cult of the 1950s, 60s and 70s in Los Angeles. Features art work by Robert Williams, Von Dutch and Ed Big Daddy Roth. Hot rod art at its best by three masters of the form.

Ed Roth and the late "Von Dutch" have had a growing following for the past 45 years. The word Pioneer doesn't even begin to describe the work these men have done over their groundbreaking careers. This book shows the best examples of both Roth and Dutch, and contains photos that we all thought were lost years ago. "Von Dutch" (a.k.a. Kenneth Howard) was a very underrated man, who was filled with talent and skills that would revel most of today's artists. This book is a tribute to these artists, allowing the reader to experience the "methods to his madness." This book is a treasure to the art of pinstriping and the "Kustom Kulture" movement.
