About the Book
Not often seen today beyond a simple brand or badge, the hood ornament tells a story. Like the mythical creatures that adorned ancient ships, to the bomber art painted on wartime planes, the humble hood ornament gives the car a style and hints at its history. Something that started as a curiosity, soon became a passion. Contained within in this book are some of the most creative and decadent hood ornaments discovered. This is a collection of photos that spans over four years of Australian automotive shows and events, from as far north as Brisbane to as far south as Adelaide. So enjoy my journey as I present “Adorned”.
