Since Michael Furman photographed his first car in the studio, he became fascinated by the mascots and badges that have identified them. They appear as small sculptures or designs in themselves, and became the subject of Michael’s recent book, Automotive Jewelry, Volume One; Mascots, Badges. A book like this had not been undertaken before – a visual reference of the great automotive “identifiers” since the late 1800s – unencumbered by the distractions of color, reflections and shapes that normally limit their presentation.
Mascots and badges vary and mature over the years, reflective of design trends, safety regulations and material availability. The importance of the mascots – how they began as early branding forms and then became integrated into the overall design and presence of the car. Images from the Automotive Jewelry, Volume One; Mascots, Badges book is the subject of this unique art exhibit.
