"Ultra-Custom Semi Trucks," a new book by trucking photojournalist Bette S. Garber, offers a close-up look at how a custom semi goes from inspiration to road-ready masterpiece.

Garber, who has spent 25 years photographing and writing about trucks, takes readers behind the scenes in a semi-customizing shop. The 192-page paperback features 263 color illustrations and celebrates the time, energy, patience, hard work and skill that go into creating these rolling works of art.

Garber's previous books include "Custom Semi," "Custom Semi Trucks," "Custom Semi Trucks 2, and "Big Rigs (The 500)". She is contributing editor for Newport Communications.
