Alfa Romeo Arese

by Patrick Dasse

An Arese is not an Alfa model but the name of the place where they were made, and this book contains hundreds of Alfa Romeo’s own archival photos of it.

Victor Morel and Antoine Joseph Grümmer

by Philippe Gaston Grümmer, Libourel, Friry

You can’t be into car design/styling without wanting to know where it all came from! Morel and Grümmer, his erstwhile employee then partner and successor, were among the leading lights of their day.

Mercedes-Benz – The Grand Cabrios & Coupés

by René Staud (photos), Jürgen Lewandowski (text)

Who needs coupés and cabrios is what this book asks. Unless the answer is self-evident in these photos you’ll have to come up with your own.

Porsche Sport 2021

A year’s worth of racing on five continents. People and places you’ve probably not heard of. Cars you haven’t seen. A thousand photos. Race results. This yearbook has been around for 29 years now—about time we showcase one here!

Mercedes-AMG 10 Years Customer Racing, A Success Story

by Christian Geib

Clear the decks—this mammoth book is 15″ tall! And it’s chock-full of useful info about what one might (mis)take for a niche subject. If you ever wondered how automakers and privateers work together, look no further.

The Ferrari Book: Passion for Design 

by Jürgen Lewandowski

Is there such a thing as too many Ferraris? Or too many Ferrari books? Nah. But this 10-pounder has challenges beyond its mere heft. Those Michael Zumbrunn photos, though. Bellisima.

by Daniel Cabart & Sébastien Faurès Fustel de Coulanges

BMW i: Visionary Mobility

by Andreas Braun 

A year before this book came out, BMW i became the “official mobility partner” of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. Music and Arts??

The Racers: The Personal Scrapbook of Al Satterwhite

by Al Satterwhite

A scrapbook is not a museum show or a historical treatise so calibrate your expectations accordingly. Neither the era nor the photographer need any explanation/justification: expect to discover cool things.

Herbert Müller – “…alles zu langsam!”

by Födisch and Roßbach

If you followed racing in the hairy 1960–80 era you could not have failed to notice this Swiss driver. This biography is deep in the best sense. The reason it was written is to commemorate the saddest of occasions.

Porsche 904

by Jürgen Lewandowski and Stefan Bogner

Produced for just two short years, the 904 broke new ground, did its job very well, and looked supremely good. This book is an homage in mostly pictures and it too does its job very well and looks supremely good.
