Minimalism is Overrated

Werner Bührer Lola T260 Cutaway

Be careful trying to take in all the details of this glorious Werner Bührer illustration of the iconic L&M liveried Lola T260. You might just get lost in it. Pro tip: click that image to make it large enough to really take in.

What magnificent work on display here. I’m a fan of what Road & Track has been doing with their redesign and relaunch, but I hope that they don’t forget to also look to the past. It’s a shame we don’t have these kinds of gatefold spreads in car magazines today and I can only envy those that could spread this October ’71 issue out on the living room floor and lose themselves in it for an hour or so.

    You can never have too much minimalism. One of the great paradoxes of life!

    p.s. @ Harlo: Agree that R&T is somewhat improved with new editorial policies and look. But I miss “R&T Classic” too much to go on. Will let my subscription lapse. Maybe try Grassroots Motorsports or, more likely, Vintage Motorsports.

    Road&Track should print a book with ALL the work he did for them!
