TASCHEN makes the kind of books your coffee table drools over, the kind guests are drawn to flip through. Since 1980, their glossy-papered graphic coffee table compendiums have compiled wonderful illustrated histories of various subjects, from the world of flowers to Tibetan murals to the films of Stanley Kubrick.
The publisher’s latest, however, takes everything to a new, far more opulent level. Ferrari is a limited edition tome dedicated to Enzo Ferrari and the magical vehicles his Italian brand has produced over the years. The Ferrari brand is more than worthy of documentation, and the new Taschen tome has the dazzling look to match its subject. A motor-inspired aluminum chassis designed by Marc Newsom encases the leather-bound book.
As for the book itself, it features innumerable previously-unseen photographs, documents from the Ferrari archives, a complete appendix of Ferrari supercars, and a list of all the Ferrari companies victories in all of the Grand Prix of the last century. Entitled “Il Fascino Ferrari,” the book is a veritable Bible for those fascinated by Ferraris. “Il Fascino Ferrari” comes out this July, and it has a price to match the supercars it odes, at around $6,000. If you’ve got a couple Ferraris in your driveway, we think you can spare the cash.
