MASTER WORK THREE VOLUME

Volume 1: La vie d'un bijoutier en acier

This volume contains the account of the life of Jacques Saoutchik from 1880 to 1957. His flight from Russia, how he built and rebuilt his business, as well as the vicissitudes of his life are described in detail, all in a kaleidoscopic context of wars, anti-Semitism and conflicts of the 20th century. There are more than 800 images in this volume alone. These include numerous personal and private photographs of the two Saoutchik families that have never been published before.

Volume 2: Le langage du design

This volume deals with Saoutchik's rare design drawings, of which more than 250 are reproduced in high quality, and includes detailed analyses of the drawings from 1908 to 1954. Each description can be read on its own. However, taken as a whole, the design discussions form a gradual analysis of the whole work that was designed by the Luxury Body, J. Saoutchik over five decades. This volume also includes an essay by American restaurateur David Cooper on the restoration of a 1947 Saoutchik Delahaye 135M.

Volume 3: Corps célestes

This volume is a large picture book with old and new photographs of cars built by Saoutchik from 1907 to 1954. This volume contains more than 800 images, many of which have never been published before. In total, they present a dazzling pictorial history of the varied work of Jacques Saoutchik and his son Pierre. The numerous images visually prove why so many people consider Saoutchik to be one of the greatest bodybuilders of all time. This volume also includes a spreadsheet of known cars with chassis numbers.
