Up in Flames: The Art of Flame Painting
Author: Tim Phelps, with "Yosemite Sam" Radoff and photography by Paul Westbrook

Flame painting first lit up the hot rod world more than 50 years ago-and it's still burning strong. At the heart of the art are a handful of innovators who have pushed the tradition to ever-greater heights over the past half-century-and these are the artists profiled in this book. Up in Flames introduces readers to the flame painters who best represent the talent and inspiration that give this particular art form its power, and whose stories best illustrate the evolution of the flame job.

Each profile features full-color illustrations, many examples of an artist's range, and the painter's thoughts on style, career, and craft-all framed by an introduction that traces the flame job from its infancy to today's modern techniques and designs.

“We shouldn’t be telling you about this – not if we ever hope to publish another story about the history of flame painting – but Motorbooks recently released a great book ... that covers the story of flaming and ‘striping from its earliest days right until today.’ Grab a copy … for everyone on your Christmas list and one copy for yourself.” --Rod & Custom magazine


“Phelps’ book … is the best book on the history of this aspect of rods and customs.” --Drive! magazine

“Whether you’re a casual admirer of flames or a full-on fanatic, this is another must-have for any gearhead collection.” --Classic Trucks

"Nothing to do with welding, but at Arc-Zone.com we love the flames!" --Carmen Electrode
