This post has been a long time coming. Finally my threats to celebrate the Constellation C-Shapes of the Sixties have become a reality.
I have long had a particular passion and enthusiasm for the Connie C-Shape, the first of the 'modern' Constellation models. I believe it is one of the most under-rated of all Constellation designs.
In this somewhat irreverent essay I offer some thoughts on the design context of the C-Shape model and survey of the various models available.
