Get an up-close-and-personal view of Ford's most beloved car, sure to please any Mustang fan.
The Ford Mustang is America's most iconic muscle car. With over 50 years of production and some 10 million cars built, the brand is recognized and admired worldwide. This lavishly illustrated book, full of gorgeous studio photography, walks the reader through more than 50 years of Mustang history, focusing on the most interesting and popular models.
From the first six-cylindered Mustang of 1964-1/2 through the heavy metal Boss and Mach 1 versions to today's all-new 2015 Mustang, The Art of the Mustang is a detailed visual overview of Mustang's greatest hits, including anniversary and pace cars, high-performance models, SVO specials, and Shelby's high-profile offerings.
Photographer Tom Loeser's stunning "light-painted" images are given context by informative text hitting the high points of each featured car along with technical-specification boxes and period ads and brochures. It's the closest, clearest look you can get of these ponies without seeing them in person.

Donald was inducted into the Mustang Hall of Fame in 2012.
Tom Loeser has been shooting cars since he was a child, not for money but because he loved them. His mentor was his father who took him on "lots" of shoots with him when he went photographing nature. Tom's working career has been varied, shooting for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, now known as CAL Fire, and photographing weddings. He went to Los Angeles Trade Technology College for photography for three years and followed that with two years at Platt College studying graphic design. That led to a job running "Z-Cube", a digital photo lab, from 1996 to early 1998. Then a Los Angeles-based trade show company hired him to design their booths and graphics, he was stolen away by a competitor to do the same job. In 2002, the Long Beach Grand Prix took him on as photographer and graphic designer and that continued a year until Northrup Grumman Corporation stole him to do photography, covering everything from grip-and-grins to stuff he cannot talk about. Tom kept his ties with the Grand Prix, returning as photographer and then chief photographer for race weekends through the present. He left Northrup in 2012 to begin a freelance career. Art of the Corvette is his first book.
