Introduced by John Moschitta Jr., the fast-talking Micro Machines Man of the TV commercials, 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! 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.

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 your favourite in this book. 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.

Micro but Many comes with an animated lenticular ‘Ultra Movers’ cover, holographic foil-blocked pages and four colourful bookmark ribbons. Micro but Many: an unofficial Micro Machines collection is sure to appeal to children of the 80s and 90s, auto enthusiasts and Micro Machines fans alike.

Each book directly ordered from Bitmap Books also comes with a foil-embossed bookmark and a 'shiny' logo sticker.

I recommend this product

I have ordered this book as son’s Christmas present so can only comment on ordering and delivery. Both these were first class! Ordering process straightforward and delivery much quicker than I expected. So from my point of view brilliant and I’m sure Simon will feel the same.

A wonderful retrospective

So much more than just a nostalgia trip - the photography, in-depth interviews and rare finds are incredible. The design and layouts are gorgeous, and the binding is top-notch.

This book goes deep into miniatures I hadn’t known existed. Really brings back these little cars in a new light. Very informative as well!

Amazing book!

This is an amazing book filled with tons of great images and stories about every child of the 80's/90's favorite little toy cars. I can't recommend this book enough to anyone that had or has a collection of micro machines still in their closet. Get it today and read it faster than the Micro Machine guy can say "Remember, if it doesn't say Micro Machines, it's not the real thing"
