As a child in the 70's Daniela Comani travelled with her parents in their car where they used to past time jotting down the cars that drove by. 40 years later she found one of these old notebooks and researched photographs of the cars. The project now takes the form of this artist's book, which can be seen as an interesting social and historical study on style in the pre-globalized world and, above all, a kind of self-portrait.
