Micro but Many: an unofficial Micro Machines collection for those of us who love toy cars

Children of the '80s and '90s! If like me, you enjoyed spending hours with your little brother, going through an entire collection of toy cars, choosing one by one which you'd get to play with that day, then this new book on Micro Machines will raise a smile.

Introduced by the fast-talking Micro Machines Man of the TV ads, 'Micro but Many: an unofficial Micro Machines collection' features over 1,000 beautifully photographed Micro Machines – the must-have miniature cars of our misspent youth.

This book is a rare collection of the most loved Micro Machines from the 1980s, 1990s and beyond – including some never before seen! Oh, the joy! Curated by collectors and the original Micro Machines designers over six beautiful sections, Micro but Many is a nostalgic, visual showroom for one man's toy car collection.

Take a spin down memory lane in a race car, plane, tank, truck, motorbike, boat, camper van or even the Lunar Rover – all are included, with detailed photography and interesting stats. The book also provides an under-the-hood look at how these diminutive wonders were created, showing off prototypes and unreleased vehicles as well as insights and anecdotes from the original Micro Machines designers.

Whether it's a unique European car such as the Aston Martin DB5 or an awesome American car like the Ford '64 Mustang or even a cool classic like the Bugatti '27 Type 41 Royale, you're sure to find that favourite car that you never let your little brother have.

The book comes with an animated lenticular 'Ultra Movers' cover, holographic foil-blocked pages and four colourful bookmark ribbons. It's available to pre-order today with a special early-bird discount. Each book directly ordered from Bitmap Books also comes with a foiled bookmark and a 'shiny' logo sticker.
