There is an endless amount of books about license plates available but most of them are only designed for simple amusement to make long motorway journeys more enjoyable for kids. The books mentioned on this page go far beyond the knowledge of the general motorist. Especially historical backgrounds and comparison lists can be found here. This list is not intended to be exhaustive.
