Curated by collectors and the original Micro Machines designers over six sections, Micro but Many is a nostalgic visual showroom. Take a spin down memory lane in a race car, plane, tank, truck, motorbike, boat or even the Lunar Rover – all are included, with detailed photography and 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.

Or maybe you’re more of a plane fan, or a military whiz, or a train spotter – regardless, you’ll find what you’re looking for here.

I ordered this book to be sent to Australia. Not only is the book beautiful (even came with a bookmark and sticker), the postage only took 1 week (outstanding from UK to Australia). And the item was packaged immaculately and safely with special padding in the box. The book itself it truly excellent - a lovingly detailed collection and history of the Micro Machines toys. I wish all toys had a book dedicated to them, that was this beautiful and comprehensive. I'm not writing this review for any reason, other than I was truly impressed and happy with this purchase. Well done Bitmap, it really exceeded my expectations.
I bought this book over xmas. Never owned or had a Micro Machine however I remember as a kid seeing them on the shelves and they looked great. This book really is a great way to learn and enjoy the machines! Great pictures and very informative!
Amazing quality, well worth the cost and wait.
One of the most beautiful and interesting books I’ve ever seen.
