Back in 2010 Citroën Héritage published “Le Patrimoine Citroën”, a book that through the historic Archives service of the Citroën Conservatoire visually encapsulated the Citroën brand.  The Citroën Conservatoire site houses a magnificent collection of models and objects collected over the years.  Their continued effort to preserve, classify, organize and make available the marque’s historic records yields this updated edition.

This new edition has been expanded to include the latest acquisitions such as the renovated U23 coach, André Citroën’s desk, and a number of architectural and style drawings.  With each turn of the page, the book provides a fascinating insight into the world of Citroën.
