DESCRIPTION: The publishers have established a reputation for very 
high quality art books that feature finely reproduced images.  
- This visual treat celebrates the 90th anniversary of Ducati, a 
style icon  – Most Highly Recommended.

This is one of those books that is a challenge to adequately 
summarize in a book review. It is a collection of overwhelming 
images of Ducati technology, design, style, and art. Each image 
is an example of outstanding photography that has been reproduced 
in a large format book on the highest quality gloss paper stock 
in a substantial binding. It will naturally appeal to anyone who 
is an enthusiast of motoring and motorcycles but it is an 
inspiration for designers and photographers and for anyone who 
appreciates lines and style.

The Ducati story begins in 1926 and there is a section at the end 
of the book, printed in two colour, that lists all of the key years 
from 1926. As throughout the book, text is given first in Italian 
and then in English.

The double and single full page images are magnificent and tell 
the style story with authority. Single full page images have a 
right facing page with title and brief text, giving first text in 
Italian and then in English. There is no need for more verbose text 
because of the strength of the images. 

The price reflects the quality and may restrict the younger readers 
who could benefit from the remarkable work, but that is the penalty 
for producing a high quality printed product. Considering the cost 
of paper stock and printing, the publishers have done very well to 
offer the book at Euro 80.00

The Ducati name began with the creation of an electrical engineering 
company in 1926. The automotive story begins in 1946 in the aftermath 
of World War Two and the burgeoning demand for motor transport which 
led to Ducati building its first engine and setting off on journey, 
producing the finest motorcycles that combined reliability, 
performance and great style. A story that can only be celebrated 
adequately with the finest collection of images.
