It’s the collection of motorcycles that nobody will ever own. The impossible collection of what experts consider the 100 most exceptional motorcycles created during the 20th century. A collection you can get in your living room if you are ready to pay the price. $695.
Why this price? Because this book, as it should be, features very high end photography, the time and expense to find these motorcycles, to set up an appropriate location to shoot each of them, required very fine detail printing with a resolution of 1440 dpi and variable-sized droplet technology as small as 3.7 picoliters, and as you can guess, is published for collectors in extremely limited quantity.
Publishers Prosper and Martine Assouline present themselves as curators of culture. Their ethic is aesthetic. This book, like all those they publish in the domain of art and design, is artfully crafted to be highly considered for its visual content. Much more than paper and images. A very luxury book of motorcycle history and of inspiration unto itself. Ready to invest $695 to own the 100 most exceptional motorcycles of the 20th century? Pre-order at Assouline.
