    After seeing it shown on a Facebook post, I bought a copy of this excellent book, having always been a fan of the late Pete Coltrin. The first couple of years covered are of the California sports car scene, which still included a number of Ferraris driven by the likes of Carroll Shelby and Dan Gurney. Pete then covered the fateful 1957 Mille Miglia, and the rest of the book is shot in Europe and naturally features plenty of Ferraris, and it's all in gorgeous color!

    'Racing in color' is a true classic. Besides the photography by Peter Coltrin , it is excellent written by Chris Nixon.

    I enjoyed this book so much that I got what might be considered its companion volume (same publisher, same size). While this time most of the photos are in black & white, they and the accompanying text are magnificent, and this was another worthwhile buy. I particularly liked the photos that Louis took while riding alongside Peter Collins in the Mille Miglia, a rarely seen viewpoint.

    Bought this many years ago along with Klemantaski's companion book on Aston Martin. The Ferrari book I got has the grey cover and is number 588/1000. It is weird and unique in that a group of pages was duplicated when it was printed and bound. Pages 109 through 124 were stitched in twice. It is a marvelous look back as is the Aston edition.

    Question:

    Have you guys been buying more/ less or the same number of motoring books during this isolation period.

    I personally have found great comfort in flicking through my library of books during the long days spent inside and have a few more coming on order.

    I've been buying more, but NOT because of the isolation. I happened to join a Facebook group and am either discovering books I didn't know about, or rediscovering books that I had long ago forgotten. Sometimes, joining a Facebook group can get expensive!
