If you were wondering which is the latest book in town that you DO NOT HAVE TO read, but could just flaunt around just because you have a lot of money, then you must think about purchasing ‘The Official Ferrari Opus: Diamante Edition‘. It costs a whopping $250,000 and of course comes with the usual diamonds and precious metals. It would be a great gift to Ferrari Collectors.
Siroya Collections have ensured that the Ferrari horse looks every bit uber-gaudy right on top of the red leather book. Each page measures 1/2 square meters and features in depth interviews of Ferrari collectors and winning drivers. It has 852 pages and weighs about 37 kilos. It also comes with 3 pages of signatures of world’s racing stars and winning drivers. The icing on the top is a personally signed note by the head of Ferrari, Luca di Montezemolo.
It would be gift packed to you in a hand crafted carbon fiber clamshell case. Why, of why do I feel that I must run back to Virginia Woolf and her hoary tales of going insane in claustrophobic Richmond, and Emily Dickenson’s morbid love for death? Perhaps it is my taste for good books, which I can pick up at a dusty book store and it would still be more precious to me than this gaudy big red book. At least, it is not the little red book and that makes me quiver in horror ‘cos it reminds me of Mao. I think I’ll settle down with St. Petersburg Tales by Gogol.
