De Originele CitroŽn CX

To the best of my knowledge, there is only one other book about the CX - 'la CitroŽn CX de mon pŤre' by Marc-Anthoine Colin.  Fine as that book is, it does not begin to compare with Buurma's oeuvre which is incredibly detailed; beautifully produced and presented and informative.

The blurb on the back of the book states "CitroŽn CX , just as legendary as its predecessor, the DS. A beautifully designed car, which turns even the worst road into a smooth carpet. Just look at the futuristic dashboard, it looks like it's come straight out of a spaceship! Once you get used to the unconventional brakes and steering, you’ll never want to drive anything else.

In this book CX-expert Michael Buurma describes the CX with incredible attention to detail: the development and evolution, by year, by type and to the smallest detail. The book also includes the versions that never got beyond the drawing board; a five-door CX, never seen interior restylings, a GTi with a diesel engine and an extended CX Pallas, to name but a few...

Surveys with technical data, chassis numbers, body colours, price lists and sales and production figures complete the picture. Although written in Dutch, countless illustrations (often never published before) make this book a must-have for the non-Dutch speaking CitroŽn fan too."

As the old adage goes, "It does what it says on the tin".  Quite simply, this is a book I wish I had written.  The Citrovisie publishing house goes from strength to strength with books full of hitherto unpublished information and pictures.

The only downside to the range of books is that they are only available in Dutch (but that might change).

Very strongly recommended - even if you speak not a word of Dutch!

Citrovisie was founded by Thijs van der Zanden, who combines his passion for writing and CitroŽns.
Citrovisie publishes books which will interest the enthusiasts of the CitroŽn brand. 
The formula is simple: no basic books with well-known facts and standard photographs, but books full of new information and unseen images. Besides the heap of information a Citrovisie book offers, it's also a lot of fun browsing through the chapters, since there are many images in the books most of which have never been published before.
