In How to Pinstripe, acclaimed veteran striper Alan Johnson teaches you everything you need to know to get started, understand how a good design comes together, and further your mastery of the form. In addition to a primer on the history and evolution of pinstriping, Johnson explains every step of the pinstriping process, from choosing paint and brushes that suit your style and abilities, to preparing surfaces experimenting with symmetrical and asymmetrical designs, striping freehand, and using patterns. In addition to stressing the importance of finding your own style and having fun with the hobby, Johnson explains the basics of colour theory and unique considerations for antique and classic cars, hot rods and customs, and motorcycles.

For more advanced pinstripers, there’s even tried-and-true advice on apprenticing and working car shows. Completely illustrated with step-by-step colour photography throughout, How To Pinstripe is a comprehensive source for beginners and veterans alike.
