Sleeping Beauties USA honours rusted and forgotten automotive treasures that have been found parked alongside the highways of America, waiting to be discovered again. Rather than showcasing typically brilliant, highly rebuilt show queens, the book instead explores the transience and inherent beauty of a car’s life, captured through stunning and evocative photography.
