This was probably my best buy of the year.  Its a huge thick book with Lancia interest in the Targa Florio section.  Don't be put off by it being in German, in truth its in about seven languages with a short introduction to each chapter being the limit of the text.  It might "just" be a photo book, but a great one...

For more Targa interest, and a lot more text, but at a considerable price, there's this one:

An American book, very well written, a beautiful item in its own right.  While Porsche is the hook its got plenty of photos of everyone else.  The author raced there himself at the time he was making this film:

Its an edgy watch, death was a big part of the scene, but very atmospheric and great footage.

This was enjoyed as well:

It is the period in which the winning Lancia Fulvia HF is . It describes and shows the " behind the scenes" of the races , mechanics , their professionalism, brand loyalty , some amusing anecdotes , race strategies , the cunning of the sporting director Cesare Fiorio , technical choices , activity of pilots and co- pilots. In summary, the story of how he was born and was made the Fulvia , including its evolution very special boat as the F & M Special ... and much more.

Of all the legendary coupe competition , held at the sports department of the House of Turin , Tonti wrote a little book that highlights changes , interventions , updates and competitions which he participated, the drivers who have driven and many other interesting news . The book, 300 pages , reports in the appendix, the "notes" of Tonti related to 7 cars, including the glorious " Fulvietta " No. 14 with Sandro Munari and Mario Mannucci won the Monte Carlo Rally 1972.

The graphic design tends to give breath and relevance to the contents , whether texts or images, via an elegant spaciousness and never intrusive which is also reflected in the particularity of the prestige format : 27 x 30 cm. A book "great" and a great book that gives the reader a way to go deep in the stories , told in travel and situations experienced by the authors . Work that can be likened to a treasure trove of memories and emotions for the first time revealed to the general public . With a modern design, clean, basic , designed to highlight the emotional, romantic and present documentary of the many previously unpublished photographs .
