I've come across a 2 volume publication called Modern Power Generators. These were produced in 1908 and contain many cutaways and pull outs. Although over a 100 years old these are in mint condition, so the owner is a bit iffy about me scanning some pages. I'll see if I can take a few photos instead :)

1908! Great stuff. Fingers crossed here.

I can understand the owner not wanting the paper to be exposed to copious amounts of photons unnecessarily, either via a scanner or a photographic flash. However, one idea, for the owners own use perhaps in the future would be to simply go to a local library where they will have an archivist/specialist with appropriate equipment. I believe this is a fairly common procedure if booked.

It's about protecting the spine as in my scanner I have to fold it back quite a lot. They are in beautiful condition and I don't want to damage them.

I think it should be archived anyway.

From Autodiva Forum -

It has been some years since I had a look there.
My problem for not frequenting the forum is all the Acrobat shit which keeps popping up.
I will be spending more time there, but can someone tell me if there is a trick or crack to
switch off the Acrobat

spelling correction

Only the first one is mine, CVA, I think the second is by the French guy who's name, like so many, many other details, I cannot remember on the instant! I am a little disappointed that you can't see a difference in style... :)

Forgive me the liberty of 'bumping' these two illustrations for a moment Tony, the contrast between the depth of one and the flatness of the other helps me illustrate a point.

Tony, can I ask, to what extent did it become necessary for you to modify your palette inorder to replicate accurately different materials? I would be very impressed if you managed to work across such distinct subject matter/materials all from within a very limited pallete.

Alternatively, was it a case of 'horses for courses' with you purchasing in special pigments and tailoring a palette to a specific job?

We have a book in our house and contained within is something similar. A cutaway of a 1920s Steam-powered portable threshing machine, a modern colour work by Graeme Chambers.

On that note of unusual subject matter, has anyone ever seen Goro Shimaka's cutaway of an 'Autosampler for liquid chromatography' machine? :drunk: That is a sight to behold. I'll put it up with the next batch of vehicles if it is new to anyone?

You probably mean Jean-Jacques François Tony, although I feel this rendering is a bit chubby and dis-proportioned
as Jean-Jacques usually is very correct in his sizing. But then he may have had an off-day.
On the other hand the colouring and detail is very much his style.

edit....the difference in style (and detail quality) is very clear to me...THAT IS NOT A MATTHEWS!

the "99" mentioned in ICITCD has to be corrected to "96"

Wonderful stuff, Alan! The fold-out detail of the car is great, and the perspective used in the 'Turgan' Water-Tube Boiler' is cool - just a couple of centuries before, no-one could have conceptualized that, and here it is in an engraving of a device from the Industrial Revolution. A round of applause for Mr Poyet!

Great stuff! :up: There is a really interesting optical illusion going on in the second image you posted. I wonder if that was a designed in or accidental effect. I find these types of 'flip-up' drawings technically audacious. And they really are all the more significant for being contemporary to the period of the subject. Blinking marvelous!

Sante Lusuardi, instead of a signature he signs with a cartoonish "helmetted pencil" Posted Image

Posted by Ibsen a few pages back.
Disegni Disante (this is the name I remember) - Lusuardi (this is the name to whom Autosprint gave the credit).
It could be Sante Lusuardi

Sante Lusuardi nasce a Correggio (RE) nel 1951.
La passione per le auto sportive è forte e Modena lo attira.
Diplomatosi all'Istituto Tecnico ha quindi la possibilità di lavorare nel settore.
Per 20 anni è impiegato alla Ferrari di Maranello come impiegato addetto nel settore delle pubblicazioni tecniche.
Da autodidatta si perfeziona nel disegno non tecnico, poi come libero professionista, collabora con Ferrari, Dallara,Fiat Auto corse ed tanti altri.
Soppiantato dall'uso del computer, si dedica ora alla Motoring Art con lavori prevalentemente a tempera nel formato A3.
Per maggiori dettagli consultate il suo sito: www.santelusuardi.com (not working)
o scrivete una mail a:santelusuardi@virgilio.it

It has been reversed though, check what you can see of ATS on the camcover.

Hi, Hawkeye! Also the winding of the road springs, not conclusive, but they are normally RH 'thread', this has LH front and back.

Now if it had been a Matthews we would only have had to zoom in on the threads of the bolts to be sure !
