Text by Pat Ganahl with Foreword by Ed “Big Daddy” Roth. Von Dutch was a man of many talents, but is known for his pinstriping and work with automobiles. Ganahl does a deep dive into Von Dutch’s life, looking closely at “interviews, published accounts, photos, and Dutch’s artwork” in an attempt to tell the most accurate narrative of the man who has become a legend (from the dust jacket). “There’s nothing completely clear about the man who called himself Von Dutch…This [book] is probably the closest we’ll ever come to knowing what really happened” (from the dust jacket).
