"Holy cow! The book is incredible!! It’s a very impressive and beautiful book full of info and pics for fans and collectors." Jim Fong – ex-design director at Galoob

Introduced by 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 for one man’s toy car collection. 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 car in this book. Or maybe you’re more of a plane fan, or a military whiz, or a train spotter - you’ll find what you’re looking for here regardless.

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 foiled bookmark and a 'shiny' logo sticker.

Micro but Many: an unofficial Micro Machines collection

From ordering to arriving, buying this book was easy and painless. When the book arrived it was packed by someone who cared and paid attention to ever detail, something you don't see often enough at the moment from many companies. The price point does not reflect the superb finish and quality of this book. The photography is crisp and well considered, the text is well laid out and easy to read and the cover is a work of art by itself - I would have expected to pay much more for a product this well designed. Even if you are not a hardcore collector of Micro Machines, this book has enough content to please any collector and it has been very well researched. Having nice nods to the hardcore collector always helps though, and things like check boxes and rarity guides are always incredibly useful in a book like this. My only complaint is that this is going to cost me more long term as I will be keeping an eye on all future Bitmap releases

Great bit of nostalgia

The book is exactly what I want from a coffee table book, highly detailed glossy images, and a lot of history about micro machines. It also shipped from the UK to Seattle in less than a week.
