    New book by Campagnolo

    Campagnolo has helped publish a new book for the Christmas season. Too bad it is only available in Europe at this time. The book is "Campagnolo il Mito" Campagnolo the Myth.
    208 pages, 250 images including a centerfold shot of my hub parts by vintage rider Michael Graves of Southern Cal.

    Here is one of the links to the book: Campagnolo, il mito » Guido Rubino

    And a link to the centefold: https://www.flickr.com/photos/curtisodom/15870106100/

    How's it feel to be a centerfold?

    If I knew I would get the centerfold I would have shown more leg.

    This looks much better than the 75th anniv. book.

    I assume the image of your hubs was to show how the Campagnolo aesthetic has influenced others?
    (wonder how they handled the Record cranks… one of the most copied designs they made)

    Hello Raymond, at the moment there is not the english version on the market. You can find the Italian edition on line (amazon & Co.).
    Thank you!
    g.
    I guess I'll wait for the English version.

    Congratulations on making the centerfold, Curtis!

    I have to guess that "il mito" translates better to "the legend" than to "the myth," because they're not presenting this stuff as fiction, right?
    You don't read my signature anyway, do you?

    This is what Campagnolo said:

    A well-known publisher is making a book about Campagnolo World and we want
    to select the images that we consider most representative of our brand.
    Among the many on-line, your was perfect to better express our "charm".

    We have done a number of these kind of images with Michael Graves. It is always fun to try and identify the odd bits we use in the pictures.

    Interesting. Charm, as others might say, the mojo of the brand.
