[Design - Kustom Kulture - Hot Rod]
Von Dutch is one of the most interesting characters in hot rod, lowbrow, and pop culture history. Considered the founder of "modern" pinstriping, he was a prominent character in many of the rodding magazines of the late '50s, and his fame endured long after he apparently tired of it. Besides being a striper, he was a gifted artist, machinist, and gun- and knife-smith. Using stories, quotes, vintage photos, and images of the art and other works he left behind, this book chronicles his life, from pinstriping beatnik to bus-dwelling hermit. Foreword by Ed "Big Daddy" Roth.
