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.

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.
