Ferrari - Allievi, Piero and Marc Newson
Art Edition, Number 44 of 250 Signed and Numbered Copies with a Sculptural Bookstand, signed by Sergio Marchionne, John Elkann, and Piero Allievi, folio, illustrated throughout with colour photographs, many folding, publisher's hand-stitched red leather, upper cover with Ferrari emblem, housed in a sculptural bookstand designed by Marc Newson evocative of a Ferrari engine. WITH: An accompanying volume documenting all of Ferrari's victories since 1947 Designed by Marc Newson, this luxury edition offers access to hundreds of photographs from the Ferrari archives and private collectors, including hundreds of unseen photographs, drawings and sketches to reveal the full story behind this iconic brand. This Art Edition, limited to 250 signed and numbered copies, is elevated by a sculpture evocative of the 12-cylinder engine in hand-bent, flared chromed steel. The bookstand’s legs are made of chromed steel joined together using tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding, a process that produces stronger, high-quality welds, typical in the automotive industry. Pino Allievi is an Italian writer and journalist. For years, he has documented the world of sports cars, both as a commentator of Formula 1 for Rai and writing for the likes of La Gazzetta dello Sport. Working with Enzo Ferrari, Allievi wrote Ferrari Racconta, the founder’s last work. He has authored several books not only on the history of cars, but also on its greatest heroes, whom he often knew personally. Allievi was a recipient of the journalistic prize Dino Ferrari, awarded by the creator himself. Marc Newson studied jewellery and sculpture at Sydney College of the Arts before moving to Tokyo. Now living and working in Paris and London, Newson has become one of the world’s most accomplished and influential designers.

The bookstand comes in an original Taschen crate.
