VE (UK) has announced the imminent arrival of the latest book from Veloce Publishing; Vespa - The story of a cult classic in pictures.

This new book written by Gunther Uhlig follows the story of the iconic Vespa brand from its beginnings to the present day, in an excellent coffee table book format that will be loved by all.

Over 18 million Vespas have been manufactured since 1946 and the number continues to grow each year, and the new book shows exactly how the brand achieved its cult status, from the post war years through the fifties, the swingin’ sixties and in to the new millennium.

The illustrated chronicle is clearly arranged over its 252 pages with over 470 pictures and illustrations, describing even the tiniest detail in a form that is understandable for all.

The author has given structure to the enormous model range, dispensing with the usual calendar year and engine displacement structure, as this can often cause a confusing overlap in the model listings, opting instead, for a classification based on similar body styles, a structure that also lends itself better to the newer automatic transmission Vespa scooters.

This book makes not only a fascinating read, but also a valuable source of information written from the ground up with no use of common preconceptions taken from earlier works and texts.
