A wonderful book which is beautifully printed and has magnificent pictures of the various Ducati models. Falloon has chosen to give some models a more than thorough coverage (e.g. the 2006 Paul Smart replica). However personally I do miss some, for Ducati, significant bikes s.a. the Monster and Paso 750. Especially when the title is "The Art of Ducati" these should have be included (either briefly or extensively). Same is for the main designers (since it is called the “Art”): would have been nice to have a small chapter about them (e.g. Massimo Tamburini, Miguel Galluzi, Pierre Terblanche, Giandrea Fabbro). Also I would have preferred models without all the race stickers since that gives the reader a better chance to Judge the lines of the bikes (e.g. 999). I still have to wait for the ultimate Ducati coffee table book, but until then this will have to do.
An enjoyable, comprehensively described and very well photographed book for the enthusiastic Ducati owner, my purchase was followed by a 2nd copy as a birthday gift for a friend of my wife who was also delighted with it.
