Mark and Myron have gone to extreme lengths to chronicle many of Japan’s most unique, fun, and interesting postwar automobiles in an illuminating and visually stunning way. I’m predicting you’ll come away wanting to add a car or three to your collection…
If you like details, and I mean ALL the details, this is the series for you. Witten by those in the know with a deep passion for Japanese sportscars from the first to the last. Enthusiasts bound for Japanese Classic Car Show (JCCS 2022) will want to have this set as their guide.
The title A Quiet Greatness couldn’t be more apt for this unprecedented book on a fantastic array of Japanese automobiles which American collectors have rarely encountered. Authors Mark Brinker and Myron Vernis have spent years gathering thousands of photos and vast amounts of research to assemble an in depth, multi-volume book that offers detail and depth never-before seen in an English-language work on Japanese automobiles.
It would be difficult to imagine a more appropriate name for a body of research describing so unsung an aspect of global industrial history than the one that Myron Vernis and Mark Brinker have chosen for their awe-inspiring study of the postwar Japanese auto industry. The volumes that comprise this essential work reveal the authors’ shared determination to enlighten the curious about that most influential global economic powerhouse and the ingenious—and often quirky—products by which it came to be defined. “A Quiet Greatness” is as rich in texture and meaning as the Japanese auto industry itself.
The quality of the packaging the book arrives in foreshadows the importance of what’s inside. Never before has a book like this existed in the English or Japanese languages. It’s an encyclopedia and an art piece. In my business this will be an invaluable reference for the ongoing preservation of these significant cars from Japan.
