From David Bull Publishing:

"I'm very pleased to announce that the Society of Automotive Historians has given its 2015 Nicholas-Joseph Cugnot Award for best publication to Geoffrey Goldberg's Lancia and De Virgilio: At the Center. The SAH presents the award for the book that best advances the understanding of the history of the automobile in the English language during the previous year.  Lancia and De Virgilio shared this year's award with J. Saoutchik Maître Carrossier, published by Dalton Watson Fine Books.

Books from David Bull Publishing have won many awards over the years, but Lancia and De Virgilio is the first to be recognized by the SAH -- perhaps because it sheds new light on an innovative automaker....But Lancia and De Virgilio is about much more than cars.  The book also stands as a unique cultural history that captures the vibrant spirit of Italian business, family life, and society during the country's post-war renaissance.  It follows an approach that is both technical and romantic, highly detailed but also popular and accessible.

Meanwhile, further praise for Lancia and De Virgilio appears in the November issue of Classic & Sports Car magazine. Martin Buckley devotes his entire Backfire column to the book, noting that "Goldberg's text is scholarly but also straightforward and readable (with extensive reference notes at the end of each chapter -- always a classy touch). He takes a broader view of the social and industrial background to De Virgilio's working life and to the nature of Lancia as a company, rather than the usual narrow appraisal of the vehicles -- a trap into which too many books fall."

Geoff was our guest speaker at the recent Australian Lancia Register Castlemaine Rally. He was most enjoyable company and his talk was terrific. He came on the tour after the rally and even had a drive of my Aprilia, although I think he misunderstood our kmh speed limit signs for mph!

Some photos of the event can be found on my website and the ALR page as well.
