Subject: THE BIG CITROËN CENTENARY BOOK FOR CHRISTMAS
The eagerly awaited Le Grand Livre Citroën will be available in full for the end of the year celebrations. This is the perfect Christmas present for anyone passionate about the history of Chevrons!
The Citroën Grand Livre is the first book to bring together such a wealth of information on the history of the builder of the Quai de Javel. Texts and illustrations, often unpublished, tell in detail, over three volumes, all the facets of the first century of Citroën. The fourth volume, devoted to the appendices, brings together reproductions of documents, images and drawings completing this century of automotive history.
Volumes 1 and 2 are available immediately. Volumes 3 and 4 are currently in production and will be available for the Christmas holidays.
ONE CHAPTER PER YEAR
In each volume the period is traced year after year. These thus form as many chapters which recount the succession of human, industrial and commercial events that have forged the history of the brand. The epic of the century!
Photographs, documents, objects, often unpublished, accompany the text and illustrate the story of each year.
THE WHOLE CITROËN HISTORY!
The main text tells Citroën over time. It immerses you in the present of the time, and shares with you the events, the work of engineers and the presentation of models, all of Citroën’s life.
In each chapter, boxes deal with important or unusual themes in order to bring them to light. A host of little stories at the heart of the big one!
