For 30 years from 1927 until 1957 the real Mille Miglia was the "race of excellence". A unique event of over 1,600 kilometres across Italy, the stars of which were some of the world's greatest car manufacturers, among them Alfa Romeo, Mercedes-Benz, Maserati, Ferrari, Jaguar and Aston Martin. And their cars were driven, naturally, by some of the equally great champions of the time, like Tazio Nuvolari, Achille Varzi, through to Juan Manuel Fangio and Stirling Moss as well as Alberto Ascari, Clemente Biondetti, Piero Taruffi and many others. Count Giannino Marzotto won the race twice in Ferraris in 1950 and 1953 and said the Mille Miglia was "a synthesis of dynamism, freedom, challenge, courage and calculation". The story, or better the stories, of that legendary race live again in this book, which tells the tales of the classic "Bresciana", first of all through hundreds of pictures, most of them never previously published. The text has been written by Leonardo Acerbi, who also wrote "Mille Miglia Story 1927-1957".

24 editions from 1927 to 1957. 24 races featuring the greatest ever cars and drivers participated in the years either side of the Second World War. This in the briefest of terms is the Mille Miglia, the race par excellence; the marathon that for almost three decades traversed Italy, bringing to the nation’s roads stars of the calibre of Varzi and Nuvolari, Biondetti and Fangio, Ascari, Moss and Taruffi driving for the likes of Alfa Romeo, Mercedes-Benz, Lancia and Ferrari. The book draws on a wealth of photographic documents, in particular for the post-war editions, from the Novafoto-Sorlini Archive, an important collection featuring the shots taken by the official race photographer, Alberto Sorlini, between 1947 and 1957. Thanks to this previously unpublished and spectacular material, the book evokes an era in which unforgettable chapters in motorsport history were written.

In 1977, precisely 20 years after the last unforgettable high speed Mille Miglia in 1957, the great race came back to relive its history all over again with the commemorative Mille Miglia, attracting once more to Brescia's Piazza della Vittoria the cars of the greatest, most prestigious race in the world that took place between the end of the'20s and the second half of the '50s. Since then, the Mille Miglia has gone back to being an event not to be missed, first every two years and then yearly for all motoring and motor racing enthusiasts. A book tells the story of this great sporting and cultural event, the 2014 edition of which opens with a historical section that recalls the 1934 race, won by Achille Varzi, and the 1954, with the magnificent victory of Alberto Ascari. After that, the book concentrates on the race that took place last May and its protagonists - competitors, crew after crew, car after car, in a long and fully-illustrated section. 2014 Mille Miglia starting grid was full of exceptional protagonists too: actors Luke Evans, Adrien Brody and Jeremy Irons, American TV personality Jay Leno, French stylist Paloma Picasso and industrial designer Mark Newson. Many musicians were also there: Brian Johnson, AC/DC frontman, British rapper Example, Scottish singer Amy Macdonald and Belgian singer Milow. Many racing drivers took the start, first and foremost Eros Crivellari, the only one with an original Mille Miglia to his credit, Andy Wallace, Jochen Mass, Teo Fabi, Bernd Schneider, Jacky Ickx, Martin Brundle and Bruno Senna, with the very evocative helmet of his late uncle Ayrton. This is indispensible publication for all those who were there, and for all vintage car enthusiasts.

In 1941, Henry Miller, the author of Tropic of Cancer, was commissioned by a Los Angeles bookseller to write an erotic novel for a dollar a page. Under the Roofs of Paris (originally published as Opus Pistorum) is that book. Here one finds Miller’s characteristic candor, wit, self-mockery, and celebration of the good life. From Marcelle to Tania, to Alexandra, to Anna, and from the Left Bank to Pigalle, Miller sweeps us up in his odyssey in search of the perfect job, the perfect woman, and the perfect experience.

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 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 and Giulia, chronologically the latest to have been launched with the name it shares with one of the great Alfa Romeo classics.
