Pink Floyd rock legend and noted Maserati collector Nick Mason will launch the world’s most exclusive and, at £12,950 probably most expensive, motoring book, the Archive Edition of the award-winning Maserati history Maserati, the Family Silver, on 10 April.
Nick will be the guest of honour at an exclusive invitation-only evening reception at Maranello Sales’ iconic Tower Garage in Egham, Surrey for Maranello customers, automotive book collectors and the motoring press.
Limited to just 26 copies worldwide, the two-volume Archive Edition of Maserati, the Family Silver comes in a bespoke leather ‘tool case’ crafted from dry-milled cow-hide, whilst each of the two museum-quality volumes is hand bound in linen and leather with a solid silver hallmarked Maserati trident plaque inset in its front cover.
Each set comes with an individually numbered hand-lettered vellum limitation page signed by Nick Mason, along with Sir Stirling Moss and the late John Surtees, the latter both winners of World Championship Grands Prix in Maserati powered Formula One cars.
The Archive Edition package also includes a specially commissioned original gouache painting, the first of which have been produced by world-renowned automotive artists Michael Turner and Dexter Brown. Both artists will be present at the launch, as will the book’s author, the acclaimed automotive historian Nigel Trow who won a major award from the Guild of Motoring Writers for Maserati, the Family Silver.
