DVN Book is Launched, Shanghai Workshop Report is Live

I'm excited to announce that the first DVN book, Lighting: the Soul of Car Design has been printed in an exclusive edition of 2,000 copies. We're sending a book to every expert who sponsored or helped build the book, then we'll be filling buyers' orders while supplies last. After such relentless work, it's a great delight to hold the actual printed book, to see the designed pages with pictures and all, to read the numerous perspectives on automotive lighting. Surely everyone who obtains this book will get a great deal of pleasure out of it. That's what it was conceived and produced for—no dry technical manual, this; it's an artful and elegant showcase, the world's first de luxe coffee table book about our shared passion, vehicle lighting.

Bring it home from the office; read it in your living room! Share it with your spouse and family—give them a glimpse into your world. Look at the nice feedback we've had from John Bullough (of RPI LRC): "It really is a beautiful book with a lot of fascinating history, and will provide inspiration to many people. My 8-year-old son and 10-year-old daughter sat with the book last night and marveled at the wonderful photos inside. I appreciate being able to play a small part in helping you put this terrific book together. Please share my appreciation with your entire team!". Thanks, John; I'm so glad the book inspires exactly the reaction we were shooting for!

The book was also conceived to attract newcomers to the field of vehicle lighting, to start on the path in the best conditions with a pleasant training tool. In every company, the newcomers should be allowed to spend unhurried time with the book. Thinking back to the beginnings of my long career at Valeo, I still remember the importance of getting newcomers involved and knowledgeable not just in the immediate projects and taskwork at hand, but also well grounded in the history and culture of the field. When I was the newcomer, I could not have imagined anything such as this DVN Book! I am very happy to give tools like this to the lighting community.

This week's newsletter contains some excerpts which present companies whose hard work laid the foundation for today's blazing pace of innovation in car lights.

Last point: the report on the DVN Shanghai Workshop is now released. You will find in it a summary of all the lectures. Find more information at the Shanghai Workshop page, where you will have access to the lectures and the pictures related to this workshop.

Sincerely yours

DVN Editor in Chief
