In the fashion capitols of the world, the Vespa motorscooter is a necessary lifestyle accessory. And those who are not Vespa owners are Vespa admirers. From the classic romance of Roman Holiday to the defiant non-conformity of the Mod and Punk scenes, and today's hipsters, the Vespa has become an icon of adventure, style, and "coolness." Like so much Italian design, the Vespa's form is sensual and sleek, and even after 60 years, its retro lines continue to seduce and excite. This eco-friendly darling of fashionistas and celebrities (Gwyneth Paltrow, Robert DeNiro, and Lenny Kravitz all have one) is the perfect antidote to city congestion, and makes getting to your next gallery opening, movie premier, or market, fast and fun.Vespa is a celebration of the scooter's history. Containing over 200 images, the book covers the technical evolution of the Vespa-first built in 1946 by the aircraft manufacturer Piaggio-through 138 successive models and versions (including the short-lived Vespa car). The book is also a look at the iconic vehicle's significant role in society and its impact on popular culture through today. Vintage advertising, copiously reproduced throughout this treasure trove of all things Vespa, embodies the uniqely European aesthetic and Italian vitality that is at once exotic and familiar to everyone.

Valerio Boni is a sports journalist with a passion for motocycles. I have bought several books on Vespas.

I don't own a Vespa I'm simply interested in the stylish machine and how big an impact it has had. Despite the small format of this book, almost every photo is a full page. And it's chock full of photos. This makes most of the images larger than the huge Vespa book by Mazzanti. I also found the writing to be particularly clear for an Italian writing in English.

Valerio Boni presents the ultimate homage to the Vespa motor scooter, the long-lasting symbol of stylish and carefree Italian youthfulness and still much admired for its retro-chic coolness. I thrive on this book for its photos depicting the scooter's history from its early beginnings through its publicity programs to the present times, and I never stop browsing it to relieve the people's bliss up close - that's a good format as far as I can tell! Thank you so much! 0.

A book by Valerio Boni about the Kultroller par excellence. Vespa: That's a two-wheeled feeling, that's the Swingin Fifties and the Rockin Sixties - but also an expression of lifestyle in today's otherwise high-powered time. With many unique images and information about the Vespa model story, it's a must for any true Vespa fan.

I have bought several books on Vespas. I don't own a Vespa I'm simply interested in the stylish machine and how big an impact it has had. Despite the small format of this book, almost every photo is a full page. (And it's chock full of photos.) This makes most of the images larger than the huge Vespa book by Mazzanti.

Not only is this book charming but it is amongst the better of all books on Vespa.

This is an amazing book. I have been a fan at a distance of Vespa Scooters for a while, but I was never very knowledgeable. This provides a great guide that brought me up to speed on the rich Vespa history.

The book has a ton of full color photos that make it fun to just flip through, and plenty of information for when you want to sit down and read. Considering how hard it is to find an up to date in print book I think this is definitely worth checking out if you are a Vespa fan. It makes a great coffee table book too!

Got this for my father in law who has been considering getting 1! He loved this and has looked threw it several times! He says it's a awesome book.. Very detailed.. Great pics and it's a nice hard cover book for someone who has 1 or is considering.. He is no longer considering.. He's getting!! :)

Although the book is deceptively small, its contents are very comprehensive. Contained between its high quality hard covers is a comprehensive view of the Vespa history, current and former production models and associated marketing programs. It's a very handy travel volume for those of us who love to strike up conversations about the world's most popular scooter brand.
