In 1986 the automobile celebrated its centenary – to mark the occasion American journalist Beverly Rae Kimes and art director Harris Lewine brought out their book The Star and the Laurel. Published by Mercedes-Benz of North America, it was the brainchild of Leo Levine, head of the company’s public relations department between 1969 and 1988. Since then it has been regarded as the standard work on the history of Daimler-Benz AG, charting the course of events right up to the centenary in 1986.
