ALFA ROMEO & FORMULA 1. From the first World Championship to the long-awaited return

The story returns, with new chapters and prospects about to unfold. The agreement between Sauber and Alfa Romeo brings back to the World Championship stage a name that for so long was an integral part of Formula 1 series. Going back to the 1950 and 1951 seasons, the championship was bathed in the red of the Portello’s cars. Then came the eras of Chiti, Autodelta, the partnership with Brabham and then the Biscione marque’s return to F1 with the Alfa-Alfa. This book contains all this and much more, including the two seasons in the early Seventies with McLaren and March, the premature implosion of the agreement with Ligier and the new Sauber adventure. The story is comprehensively illustrated with hundreds of colour and black and white images, many previously unpublished, and a list of all the results obtained by Alfa Romeo in Formula 1.

Alfa Romeo & Mille Miglia

Alfa Romeo and the Mille Miglia are two names packed with fascination and legend, both for the prestige of the Brescian race and the epic feats of the drivers and the Portello-built cars on the roads of the unforgettable Italian marathon. No other marque can boast of competing in such a large number Mille Miglias, and especially not of such a series of successful results “collected” by Alfa Romeo in the celebrated Race of the Red Arrow. Alfas were undisputed pre-war kings of the race, a period in which they won no fewer than 10 of the 13 events that took place between 1927 and 1940. And after the Second World War the 14th Mille Miglia of 1947 fell to the Alfa Romeo 8C 2900 B driven by Romano-Biondetti. Then, although missing out on the overall win, Alfa was once again a Mille Miglia protagonist in the 1957 race. To tell this long and spectacular story of road racing at its best is the authoritative pen of Andrea Curami, who relives the long and distinguished career of Alfa Rome at the Mille Miglia, all illustrated by rare archive pictures.

Alfa Romeo Dal 1910 ad oggi

Over 100 years ago, a marque that stood out immediately in a young automobile panorama was founded on the outskirts of Milan – Alfa Romeo. A name that became synonymous with cars, so important has its presence been both industrially and in motor sport. In this long period of time, the celebrated Italian manufacturer has brought cars to life that have become part of history, like the 1900, Giulietta, Giulia and Alfetta. At the same time, Alfa Romeo has been an outstanding motor sport competitor, winning all of the most significant races and titles, among them the Mille Miglia, the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Tourist Trophy and the Formula 1 World Championship. This book, which first appeared in 2010 when Alfa Romeo (under the title 'Alfa Romeo 1910-2010') celebrated its first century, was written by the late Maurizio Tabucchi, an expert on the history of the marque, who died a few years ago. Today, his work has been updated to include all the latest models – the Giulietta, Mito, Giulia and Stelvio chronologically the latest to have been launched with the name it shares with one of the great Alfa Romeo classics.

Alfa Romeo Duetto e Spider

Few cars in the history of the automobile have enjoyed such a long life as the Alfa Romeo 1600 Spider – known to most as the Duetto – that made its first appearance at the 1966 Geneva Motor Show. Created by the magical Pininfarina, who had already designed the Giulietta Spider, Alfa's new discovery immediately transformed itself into an icon due to the fascination of its flowing lines and the reliability of its much tested mechanics. About a decade later, in the mid-Seventies, the Spider was given a stubby tail, which would accompany the Alfa Romeo two-seaters to the early Nineties. Fifty years after that 1966 Geneva Motor Show that saw the baptism of the Duetto series, it seemed inevitable that a new book would be devoted to this historic car, so beautiful and attractive.

Alfa Romeo Giulia

Even today, to many people the Alfa Romeo Giulia is synonymous with Alfa itself. It was certainly a legendary car and a fundamental one to the brand. It first appeared as the heir to the apparently irreplaceable Giulietta, but it was able to repeat its predecessor’s success, turning the motoring world into turmoil. From comments in the press on the eve of the new car’s presentation in 1962, the word that recurred more than any other was “originality”: a new design that was at first controversial and later loved unreservedly, new technological developments and higher performance. And the Arese factory at which it was built was also new. The Giulia dominated the market until 1977, but even after that it never left the hearts of enthusiasts. The car’s history, the versions, its motor sport career and pictures of an epoch are all between the covers of this book. As is a “small guide” for those who acquire now or are “returning” to this great Alfa Romeo.

All American Ads 90s

Selling at the End of the Millennium
‘The Lion King’ roared and Michael Jackson reigned as the “King of Pop” when the century turned.
From the Los Angeles riots to the Columbine High School massacre, Americans witnessed events and purchased items that reflected the best and worst of the decade. Bill Clinton’s presidency was in jeopardy, the digital age had erupted, and Silicon Valley was affecting everyone on the planet. Meanwhile nudity and sex ruled the pages of magazines, selling everything from haute couture to fragrances and microwave ovens. Nirvana entertained Generation X while the “Greatest Generation” considered purchasing a Probe and something called a Hummer. Super Soakers and the game consoles Game Boy and PlayStation were the new toys, as Super Mario World, Gran Turismo, and Sonic the Hedgehog were warping the minds of young people everywhere. Luxury brands were in demand: shoppers coveted a Gucci bag, a Louis Vuitton tote, a Hermes scarf, or a Prada frock. TWA and Continental Airlines still flew the airways and Volkswagen reimagined the Beetle. It was a decade that seemed safely benign, but was jammed with events and consumption on a grand scale, setting the stage for the 21st century. Featuring six chapters that cover a range of advertising, from food and fashion to entertainment and cars, a Desert Storm’s worth of advertising highlights makes All-American Ads of the ’90s a must-have compendium for every Beanie Babies–collecting, Simpsons–watching, pog-hoarding, and Harry Potter–loving citizen of 1990s consumerism.

Audrey Hepburn. Photographs of Bob Willoughby (1953–1966)

“People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.” —Audrey Hepburn In his distinguished career as a Hollywood photographer, Bob Willoughby took iconic photos of Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor and Jane Fonda, but remains unequivocal about his favorite subject: Audrey Kathleen Ruston, later Edda van Heemstra Hepburn-Ruston, best known as Audrey Hepburn. Willoughby was called in to shoot the new starlet one morning shortly after she arrived in Hollywood in 1953. It was a humdrum commission for the portraitist often credited with having perfected the photojournalistic movie still, but when he met the Belgian-born beauty, Willoughby was enraptured. “She took my hand like...well a princess, and dazzled me with that smile that God designed to melt mortal men’s hearts,” he recalled. As Hepburn’s career soared following her Oscar-winning US debut in Roman Holiday, Willoughby became a trusted friend, framing her working and home life. His historic, perfectionist, tender photographs seek out the many facets of Hepburn’s beauty and elegance, as she progresses from her debut to her career high of My Fair Lady in 1963. Willoughby’s studies, showing her on set, preparing for a scene, interacting with actors and directors, and returning to her private life, comprise one of photography’s great platonic love affairs and an unrivalled record of one of the 20th century’s touchstone beauties.

Best Movies Of The 70s

The 1970s: that magical era betwixt the swinging 60s and the decadent 80s, the epoch of leisure suits and Afros, the age of disco music and platform shoes. As war raged on in Vietnam and the cold war continued to escalate, Hollywood began to heat up, recovering from its commercial crisis with box-office successes such as Star Wars, Jaws, The Exorcist, and The Godfather. Thanks to directors like Spielberg and Lucas, American cinema gave birth to a new phenomenon: the blockbuster. Meanwhile, across the Atlantic, while the Nouvelle Vague died out in France, its influence extended to Germany, where the New German Cinema of Fassbinder, Wenders, and Herzog had its heyday. The sexual revolution made its way to the silver screen (cautiously in the US, more freely in Europe) most notably in Bertolucci's steamy, scandalous Last Tango in Paris. Amidst all this came a wave of nostalgic films (The Sting, American Graffiti) and Vietnam pictures (Apocalypse Now, The Deer Hunter), the rise of the anti-hero (Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Dustin Hoffman), and the prestigious short-lived genre, blaxploitation.

The book covers the long industrial, technical and, why not, trend-setting story of Corvette in crisp, precise and accurate text, enhanced by an impressive array of illustrations from the archives of its parent company, General Motors.

Ferrari. 70 Vetture che hanno fatto la Storia

When the V12 engine of the Ferrari 125 S let out its first growl within the then new factory at Maranello in the spring of 1947, perhaps not even Enzo Ferrari thought he was at the beginning of an epic saga that would become so glorious and long lasting as that of the cars of the Prancing Horse. This book is a tribute to the first 70 years of the marque that has become a symbol of Italy throughout the world. It covers the company’s entire history as seen through 70 of Maranello’s most iconic models. They include the 166, 250, 275, 330 and 365 of the ‘50s and ‘60s, the subsequent 308, 512 and F40. Those and more are the bedrock of this fascinating technical, human and sporting review. This book, which is illustrated with hundreds of colour and black and white pictures, many of them never previously published, is aimed at both the most refined students of the marque, but especially at those who want to get a little closer to this fascinating story.

Fiat 500

The Fiat 500 is, perhaps, the car that marked an epoch more than any other. Five million examples were built between the time the car was introduced back in 1957 and 1975, when Turin decided to end its production. This book tells the story of the extraordinary little Fiat, analysing its industrial, technical and commercial aspects. Production numbers, detailed technical specifications, chassis numbers, cut-away illustrations of its mechanics and body, period pictures in colour and black and white bring the 500 back to life model by model, providing a useful support for the car’s correct restoration.

Gil Elvgren

The seminal pin-up artist
Post-depression America was in desperate need of a defining iconography that would lift it out of the black and white doldrums, and it came in the form of Gil Elvgren’s Technicolor fantasies of the American dream. His technique—which earned him a reputation as "The Norman Rockwell of cheesecake"—involved photographing models and then painting them into gorgeous hyper-reality, with longer legs, more flamboyant hair and gravity-defying busts, and in the process making them the perfect moral-boosting eye-candy for every homesick private.

Gilles Villeneuve - Immagini Di Una Vita / A Life In Pictures

FOREWORD BY ERCOLE COLOMBO
Six victories, two pole positions, eight fastest laps and 13 podium places. Statistics that are anything but striking. In Formula 1 today, there are drivers who have won a great deal more, at least according to bare numbers. But Gilles Villeneuve can’t be evaluated like that, because there is no way of measuring excitement. Even though he has been dead for over 30 years, the legend of the little Canadian, who was killed on 8 May 1982, is still imbued with such emotion. Gilles the Aviator as Enzo Ferrari nick-named him, the only driver of the period for whom the expression Villeneuve Fever was coined. His crazy flight at Fuji in 1977, his first GP win at home in Canada in 1978, the unforgettable 1979 season followed by a year of purgatory, his epic success at Monaco in 1981 and the in-house duel with Didier Pironi at Imola in 1982 and that last crazy flight at Zolder. Snapshots of a story that smacks of legend, one that is relived again today in this book, packed with previously unpublished pictures and written by Mario Donnini, a professional journalist and author of the Ayrton Senna volume in the same series.

For centuries, writers, artists, architects and merchants have been drawn here, inspired by the beauty of Venice, Florence, Naples and Rome. Countless books, paintings, poems and sculptures are evidence of its undying appeal, and over the past 60 years, the country has become one of the world's top travel and holiday destinations. The loveliness of Italy—its architecture, landscapes, culture and food (some of the world’s finest!) — if not eternal, is certainly enduring, and the easy-going and relaxed Italian lifestyle, il dolce far niente, is still unrivaled.

Harley Davidson - La Storia

In the collective imagine – and not only that of the two-wheel enthusiasts – Harley-Davidson is the name that has created a myth and a legend. From way back in 1903, when the celebrated brand was established, the American company’s motorcycles have been the forbidden dream of entire generations of bikers, who saw in the Harleys a style of life rather than simply a motorbike. In the scarce Italian language bibliography devoted to this celebrated brand, this new book bridges an important gap by covering the story of its origins right through to today, taking in iconic models like the Knucklehead, Panhead, Peashooter, K.R., Sportster, XR 750, Shovelhead, Evolution, Twin Cam and V-Rod. The illustrations in this book are of the first magnitude, with hundreds of colour photographs, taken by some of the most celebrated photographers in the United States, joined by precious, unpublished historical material that comes from the Milwaukee company’s own archives. The book closes with a chapter on Harley’s racing history.

Innocenti Lambretta. Edizione Ampliata

The Lambretta was undoubtedly one of the most popular means of transport of the Fifties and Sixties. A valid alternative to the car, it was a loyal travelling companion for hundreds of thousands of Italian families, who had the good fortune to ride it for work or pleasure or both. Together with the Vespa, the Lambretta monopolised the Italian scooter market and was able to conquer that position due to its original technical characteristics and its exceptionally modern design. This is now the third edition of the “Innocenti Lambretta” book by Vittorio Tessera, expanded with all-colour photographs reproducing rare advertising of the period, the manufacturer’s brochures and even film posters of the Lambretta, which was the legendary, unforgettable and unquestioned protagonist in its golden years.

KAWASAKI. La storia

The story of Shozo Kawasaki, a name that became a legend and has been transformed into myth, a hundred-year-old story, a fable from a different time. A cosmic echo that preserves the work of a man whose name already encapsulated those four perfect syllables like the scene of a transverse, in-line four-stroke four. From the origins back in 1878, of the first manufactures in the naval sector, to the aviation, railway and automotive and construction products and through to the creation of motorcycles, the principal focus of this book. The Kawasaki Story features the Akashi firm’s motorcycling output from 1952 through to the present day, with photographs, technical files, model codes and the features of every single two-, three- and four-wheel model. Contents enhanced by the Kawasaki Racing section with the stories of riders, bikes, technology, events, world titles, victories, records, epic duel and so much more. A journey that has lasted no less than 65 years, a period in which the Kawasaki Heavy Industries colossus has successfully combined tradition and technological development in a marriage of rare passion, transferring a particular sentiment into the historic and current production of its motorcycles. The tangible proof that everything may be created, but that nothing must be forgotten.

Lambretta Lui. History, models and documentation.

The first and only monograph entirely devoted to the Lambretta LUI scooter, produced by Innocenti in their tens of thousands, designed by that master of body styling, Nuccio Bertone, creator of outstanding cars like the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint and the Lamborghini Miura. The Lambretta LUI was innovative – perhaps too much so – and that was possibly the reason it was not understood, and it was unable to cut for itself as big a slice of the youth market as it should have done. Innocenti believed in the LUI with all its conviction, having invested considerably in advertising it in all available media: television, cinema, newspapers and magazines. A mighty effort that did not bring in the hoped-for resultsBut today, the LUI has been recognised, quite rightly, as one of the shining examples of Italian design as applied to a scooter. Published as the first in a series of books spotlighting the most important and significant Lambrettas, this treatise unveils all the technical and stylistic secrets of the LUI model by model, illustrated by invaluable archive material never before published, and is written by Vittorio Tessera, a major world historian on the popular two-wheeler in all its variations.This first monograph in the series will be followed by others on the Lambretta world, including the LiTV 1, LiTV 2, LiTV 3, S/SX, DL and Junior series.

LeRoy Grannis. Surf Photography

Catching the Perfect Wave
America’s most important surf photographer of the ’60s and ’70s
At a time when surfing is more popular than ever, it’s fitting to look back at the years that brought the sport into the mainstream. Developed by Hawaiian Islanders over five centuries ago, surfing began to peak on the mainland in the 1950s—becoming not just a sport, but a way of life, admired and exported across the globe. One of the key image-makers from that period is LeRoy Grannis, a surfer since 1931, who began photographing the longboard era of the early 1960s in both California and Hawaii. This edition brings back Grannis’s hair-raising, sold-out Collector’s Edition, curated from the photographer’s personal archives, to showcase his most vibrant work in a compact and affordable format—from the bliss of catching the perfect wave at San Onofre to dramatic wipeouts at Oahu’s famed North Shore. An innovator in the field, Grannis suction-cupped a waterproof box to his board, enabling him to change film in the water and stay closer to the action than any other photographer of the time. He also covered the emerging surf lifestyle, from “surfer stomps” and hoards of fans at surf contests to board-laden woody station wagons along the Pacific Coast Highway. It is in these iconic images that a sport still in its adolescence embodied the free-spirited nature of an era—a time before shortboards and celebrity endorsements, when surfing was at its bronzed best.
“Grannis’s pictures are startling. The scenes they record and breaks they document are pristinely beautiful and impossibly vacant.”— The New York Times
The photographer:
LeRoy Grannis’s initial foray into surfing began at age 14, but it wasn’t until the age of 42 that he picked up a camera and made a career out of it. Under doctor’s orders to take up a hobby, Grannis built a darkroom in his garage and began shooting surfers at Hermosa Beach, and "Photo: Grannis" quickly became a hallmark of the California surf scene of the 1960s. Grannis is considered one of the most important documentarians of the sport, and was inducted into the Surfing Hall of Fame in 1966. He died on February 3, 2011. The author:
Over the past decade working as Surfer magazine's globe-roaming editor at large, photojournalist Steve Barilotti has made it his business to document the sport, art, and lore of surfing. He has also written for The Perfect Day and books by renowned surf photographers Art Brewer and Ted Grambeau. The editor:
Jim Heimann is the Executive Editor for TASCHEN America. A cultural anthropologist, historian, and an avid collector, he has authored numerous titles on architecture, pop culture, and the history of Los Angeles and Hollywood, including TASCHEN’S Surfing, Los Angeles. Portrait of a City, and the best selling All American Ads series.

London Portrait

London calling
A photographic journey through the history of this epic city

Samuel Johnson famously said that: “When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life.” London’s remarkable history, architecture, landmarks, streets, style, cool, swagger, and stalwart residents are pictured in hundreds of compelling photographs sourced from a wide array of archives around the world. London is a vast sprawling metropolis, constantly evolving and growing, yet throughout its complex past and shifting present, the humor, unique character, and bulldog spirit of the people have stayed constant. This book salutes all those Londoners, their city, and its history. In addition to the wealth of images included in this book, many previously unpublished, London’s history is told through hundreds of quotations, lively essays, and references from key movies, books, and records. From Victorian London to the Swinging 60s; from the Battle of Britain to Punk; from the Festival of Britain to the 2012 Olympics; from the foggy cobbled streets to the architectural masterpieces of the millennium; from rough pubs to private drinking clubs; from Royal Weddings to raves, from the charm of the East End to the wonders of the Westminster; from Chelsea girls to Hoxton hipsters; from the power to glory: in page after page of stunning photographs, reproduced big and bold like the city itself, London at last gets the photographic tribute it deserves. Photographs by: Slim Aarons, Eve Arnold, David Bailey, Cecil Beaton, Bill Brandt, Alvin Langdon Coburn, Anton Corbijn, Terence Donovan, Roger Fenton, Bert Hardy, Evelyn Hofer, Frank Horvat, Tony Ray-Jones, Nadav Kander, Roger Mayne, Linda McCartney, Don McCullin, Norman Parkinson, Martin Parr, Rankin, Lord Snowdon, William Henry Fox Talbot, Juergen Teller, Mario Testino, Wolfgang Tillmans, and many, many others.

Maserati - Un Secolo di Storia

ON THE OCCASION OF 100 YEARS OF MASERATI
A project of high level meant to commemorate 100 years of Maserati, this work covers the history of the marque in all its aspects and is divided into three large sections. The first chapter signed by Luca Dal Monte, deals with the company history and the marque’s industrial matters: from the early years, when production was concentrated on racing cars, to the advent of the first GT of the immediate post-war period through to the great classics of the Fifties, Sixties and Seventies. The ‘Road cars and design’ section by Lorenzo Ramaciotti, is specifically devoted to the Trident’s road cars: from the A6 1500 to current production, including the extraordinary expressions of design offered by models like the 3500 and 5000 GT, the various Quattroportes, the Mistral, Ghibli, Indy to then approach the present day, touching on the 3200 GT and the current Quattroporte, Granturismo and GranCabrio. Historic and modern pictures illustrate each of these models in a long photographic treatise, preceded by an introductory section which focuses on the historic matters associated with this vein of Maserati production. The last section written by Cesare De Agostini and Gianni Cancellieri is about races: from the outset Maserati’s history has mainly been one of racing, from the pioneering era to the glorious Fifties, as much in Formula 1 with the 1957 world championship won by Juan Manuel Fangio, as endurance races, Maserati has expressed itself with success at the top levels of the sport. But even before that, the glorious marque had written unforgettable pages in the annals of racing, including victories at Indianapolis in 1939 and 1940. The recent success of the MC12 is the latest chapter in this proud history of achievement. There are also specific boxes in this section devoted to particular competitive aspects, such as the great road speed records (1926-1952) and the company’s long experience in speedboat racing.
AN OSCAR NOMINATED BOOK
The book has received a nomination for the prestigious 2014 Motoring Book of the Year promoted by the Royal Automobile Club - historic clubhouse founded in London in 1897 to promote the motor car and its place in society.

Mercedes-Benz & Mille Miglia

Two key players in the history of motor sport first came together in the early Thirties and continued their racing association until 1957. The cars from Stuttgart competed in the Brescian classic from 1930 to 1957 and won the race twice. The first time was in 1931, when Rudolf Caracciola drove the huge SSK to victory: the second was in 1955 with the 300 SLR, one of the famous Silver Arrows, crewed by Stirling Moss and Denis Jenkinson, This fascinating story, which not only deals with the sport itself but also the difficult relationship that existed between Italy and Germany throughout the Second World War, is illustrated with exceptional photographs and other material, most of it provided by Mercedes-Benz itself and never previously seen.

Advertising for the Space Age
Gleaned from thousands of images, this book offers the best of American print advertising in the age of the “Big Idea.” From the height of American consumerism, bold and colorful campaigns paint a fascinating portrait of the 1950s and 60s, as concerns about the Cold War gave way to the carefree booze-and-cigarettes capitalism of the Mad Men era.
Digitally remastered for optimum reproduction quality, the ads burst with crisp fonts and colors, as well as a sexy sense of possibility, beguiling their audience to buy everything from guns to girdles, cars to toothpaste, air travel to home appliances. At turns startling, amusing and inspiring, this panorama of mid-century marketing is at once an evocative period piece and a showcase of design innovation and advertising wit.

Mini

Some cars are able to leave their mark an era, their names written indelibly not only on the history of four-wheel transport, but also the much more significant trends and culture of their time. Among them are the Fiat 500 and the Volkswagen Beetle, but also the unforgettable Mini. The small, revolutionary car designed by Alex Issigonis and presented in 1959, was produced right through to the next millennium by a number of manufacturers (Austin, Morris, Innocenti) in so many different versions. This book tells the industrial, technical and sporting story – including the giant-killing Monte Carlo Rally victories – of this authentic milestone of the 20th century.

Moto Guzzi - 90 Anni di Arte e Tecnologia

Why is Moto Guzzi so clearly the Italian motorcycle manufacturer most beloved of two-wheel collectors and enthusiasts? And did the first of Carlo Guzzi’s creations win races because it was functional or beautiful? Answering those questions with some sort of basic logic is not easy, establishing which of these elements were determinate is extremely difficult. In fact, after almost a century, one can affirm that the reasons for the success of the historic Mandello marque are to be found in a rare and a highly successful union of those qualities, but also in having always been loyal to itself and to its fundamental traditions: first the horizontal engine and then the V-2. Apart from the technical trends, the history of Guzzi is also made up of men, technicians and champions who have written one of the most fascinating chapters in the history of two-wheeled machines, today encapsulated in one single invaluable “handbook”.

Moto Guzzi. Dal 1921 ad oggi. Edizione Aggiornata

Why is Moto Guzzi the best loved Italian motorcycle manufacturer among collectors and enthusiasts of the two-wheeled world? And why is Carlo Guzzi considered an innovator in the world of the motorcycle? And how did the sensational racing bikes designed by Giulio Cesare Carcano and his assistants come to dominate the sport in the 1950s? Leafing through this book, readers will find not solely an introduction to the “Guzzi phenomenon”, but also an explanation to why, after almost a century, the Eagle of Mandello continues to fly. Part of the secret is having always remained true to itself, never foregoing certain fundamental motifs: the single-cylinder horizontal engine that with its beat lent a rhythm to the first fifty years of its history and the later V-twin that still today, in various displacements and fitted to a broad range of models, continues to set the enthusiast’s pulse racing. This authentic almanac of the historic marque from Mandello del Lario was first published in 2011 and has now been updated with the most recent Guzzi models: from the latest versions of the Stelvio to the California 1400 Touring, from the V7 II (2015) to the V7 III (2017), by way of the Audace, the Eldorado, the V9 Roamer and the futuristic MGX-21. All the latest jewels in a never-ending story. The book includes a systematic catalogue of all the Moto Guzzi models, complete with technical specifications and historic and modern photos.

Moto Triumph. La rinascita di un mito.

Triumph Motorcycles is one of the oldest brands of all in the history of such machines. It’s origins date back to the very first years of the last century at the dawn of two-wheel motorisation. This book covers the long, tormented history of the British marque, the years of its greatest splendour, followed by the various financial difficulties, the subsequent change of ownership through to the cessation of production itself. Today, though, Triumph is in excellent financial and productive health, firmly established in world markets and projected more than ever towards the future, well aware of its glorious past. To company matters are added profiles on the people who have contributed to writing this history: businessmen, designers and racers. And there is no lack of races, the innumerable victories, the various speed records achieved on the Bonneville salt lake flats, which later gave their name to Triumph’s most famous model, a real two-wheel icon. The book is complete with a systematic cataloging of all the production and racing models, including the scooter and military motorcycles, the pride of Her Majesty’s forces, all with indispensible technical specifications.

Norman Mailer. Moonfire. The epic journey of Apollo 11

It has been called the single most historic event of the 20th century: On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins met John F. Kennedy’s call for a manned Moon landing by the end of the 1960s. A decade of tests and training, a staff of 400,000 engineers and scientists, a budget of billions, and the most powerful rocket ever launched all combined in an unprecedented event watched by millions the world over. And no one captured the men, the mood, and the machinery like Norman Mailer. One of the greatest writers of the 20th century, Norman Mailer was hired by LIFE magazine in 1969 to cover the Moon shot. He enhanced his reportage in the brilliantly crafted book, Of a Fire on the Moon, which is excerpted here. Equally adept at examining the science of space travel and the psychology of the men involved—from Saturn V rocket engineer Wernher von Braun, to the crucial NASA support staff to the three astronauts—Mailer provides provocative and trenchant insights into this epoch-making event. Illustrating this volume are hundreds of photographs and maps from the NASA vaults, magazine archives, and private collections. These images document the development of the agency and the mission, life inside the command module and on the Moon’s surface, and the world’s jubilant reaction to the landing. This edition includes an original introduction by Colum McCann and captions by leading Apollo 11 experts, explaining the history and science behind the images, citing the mission log and publications of the day, and postflight astronaut interviews.

Paris Mon Amour

A declaration of love to the world`s most beautiful city.
At once cosmopolitan metropolis and venue for a pensive stroll, Moloch and emblem of the modern, Paris has been a source of inspiration for countless artists and writers down the ages. But not least it is the home and constant muse of a relatively young art: photography. Since the earliest days of the daguerreotype right up to our time, renowned photographers such as Joseph Nicéphore Niepce, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Doisneau, and Jeanloup Sieff have lived and worked in the city of lights. Over the years a love affair developed between Paris and photography, giving rise to a remarkable record of the metropolis and a telling history of a new art form. This volume takes the reader on numerous walks, camera in hand, through the streets of Paris. Atmospheric black-and-white photos, shot by great photographers over two centuries, reveal the dramatic and the tranquil, the historic and the everyday—in the capital`s parks and gardens, boulevards and backstreets, passages and arcades, bistros and nightclubs.

Porsche 911 - Evoluzione e tecnica dal 1963 a oggi

It has been part of motoring history for more than 40 years, becoming an absolute icon for more than a generation. It is the 911, the Porsche par excellence, a car that has already entered the category of the classics of a distant 1963, when it appeared with the "pseudonym" 901. To tell its story, model for model, its technical evolution from its origins to today are Joerg Austen, for many years the Porsche man in the gearbox development department, and writer Sigmund Walter, who has a profound knowledge of the celebrated German marque. For each of the versions that have appeared over the years, there is a brief introductive history to highly detailed technical specifications that contribute to making this work an instrument of indispensable consultation for collectors, restorers and enthusiastic "Porschisti".

Porsche 911 1963-1998

An excellent but at the same time unusual design with the mechanics all-astern, in line with the Porsche tradition, which had decreed the success of the 356. But, especially from 1963 up to today, a relentless continuation and – for many people – stunning series of updates, improvements and evolutions to always keep the car in step with time and often ahead of itself. That, more than anything else, is the 911. Not only a status symbol, king of such environments as the racetracks of the world, whether asphalted, rough and unmade or covered with snow. The book covers the 911 epoch, the Porsche par excellence, its variants, the technology and its performances. And then there is fundamental advice for those who want to delve into the secrets under the engine cover and begin to restore one of these legendary cars.

Porsche 911 Il mito di Stoccarda 50° Anniversario

The Porsche 911 was unveiled at the 1963 Frankfurt Motor Show and from that moment on, it became the most coveted high performance sports car among enthusiasts the world over. The car is a phenomenon, as it has been in non-stop production for 50 years and, despite the subsequent appearance of numerous formidable competitors, it has remained an object of respect and admiration on both road and track. Paul Frère, qualified engineer, pilot and writer gave life, many years ago, to this authentic "opera omnia" on the 911, explaining origins, technical evolution, sporting feats, but, above all, describing in detail the technical characteristics of all the 911 models and every version of its engine. On the occasion of its 50th anniversary, this masterpiece has been updated by co-author Tony Dron up to the 991, last model in a legendary series.

Porsche L'Eccellenza su Strada e in Pista

There are not many marques that have, by right, entered into the history of world motoring and motor sport but, certainly, among them a prominent role has been played by Porsche. For over 60 years the famous Stuttgart company’s name has been synonymous with excellence as much of its road cars as its racers. The stars of the road car variety carry names, or rather model numbers, like the 356, 911 or 959, while among the racings cars are the 550, 904 and 908, as well as the unforgettable 917 to have played a “show stealer” roles in sport car and prototype racing. The bibliography devoted to the German manufacturer is by no means deficient, but it did lack a work that could cover Porsche’s fascinating story in a synthetic but exhaustive manner, a story that began in 1946 and seems will never end.

Reinhart Wolf. New York

Sky high view
A photographic homage to Manhattan heights
German photographer Reinhart Wolf (1930–1988) had a particular eye for architecture. In 1979, he turned his lens to some of the tallest buildings in the world, taking several trips to New York to photograph its most sky-soaring assets. With texts by Edward Albee and Sabina Lietzmann and an interview with Andy Warhol, TASCHEN’s reprint of Reinhart Wolf – New York is both a nostalgic homage to the 1970s spirit of the city and a superb example of architectural photography. From Gothic detailing to the sleek surfaces of the International Style, Wolf’s portfolio spans the great stylistic reach of Manhattan skyscrapers, but captures all buildings with the same infectious love and awe. The Chrysler Building tower shimmers in a grey dawn light, the Empire State glows against a stormy sky, and the Flatiron Building basks in a late afternoon sun.
Though the last three decades have seen dramatic transformation to the skyline, not least after the events of 9/11, this book is testimony to New York’s enduring wonder. Surveying these grand, tall, proud structures, Wolf captures not just feats of engineering or marvels of ornamentation, but also, and above all, the magnetism of this city soaring to towards the sky.

The Great American Pin-Up

Pictures from an age when eroticism was still innocent
They’ve been exciting generations of men, on calendars and covers, as centrefolds or even on playing cards: pin-ups.

This book tells the tale of a genre as utterly American as the paintings of Edward Hopper, describing its origins and development in detail and showcasing the most important artists.

Travel

Ticket To Ride, Fly, Drive, or Sail
A lush visual history of the Golden Age of travel

The metabolism of travel changed more in the last century than in the previous half-millennium, a stunning transformation triggered by American wanderlust. In less than 100 years, the U.S. mass-produced the automobile, invented airplanes, freeways, motels, even sent men to the Moon. Travel grew ever faster and easier. Above all, it was democratized — enabling millions to explore distant lands, or see their own more fully.
At the start of the 20th century, only people with extensive disposable income and time to spare could enjoy leisure travel. By the century’s end, journeys took hours, not days, and mass travel — especially brief air flights — became the new normal. Along the way, ocean liners broke speed records, aerodynamic trains roared down the tracks, stylish boat-plane clippers evolved into jumbo jets. Whether aboard high-speed locomotives or ships, jets, or Greyhound buses — or when setting their own schedule on the open road — Americans demanded ever greater mobility and wider choice of destinations, thereby setting a new standard for travelers around the world.
A lush visual history of international wanderlust, this volume features 400-plus print advertisements from the Jim Heimann Collection, that illustrate the evolution of leisure travel — from domestic to global, exclusive to popular, exotic to standardized — and its crucial role in American culture.
With an introduction, decade-by-decade analysis, and an illustrated timeline, this book highlights the cultural and technological developments that transformed travel from a cushioned journey of the elite into a convenient leisure pastime for the general public. 20th Century Travel takes us on a grand tour of travel’s golden age.
