Scooterama : Cafe Chic and Urban Cool
by Alastair Walker, Steve Berry
After enjoying iconic status among Hollywood celebrities from John Wayne to Jayne Mansfield in the 1950s, and the trendy "mods" of the 1960s, scooters suffered through a period of relative obsurity in the 1970s and 1980s. Today, however, forward-thinking manufacturers such as Piaggio, Velocifero, Peugeot, Italjet, and Honda are launching scooters that are gaining favor among glitterati, daily commuters, and the hip cognoscenti worldwide. This all-color history of the motorscooter examines its sophisticated popularity beginning in the 1950s and ending with its current resurgence. Beautifully produced, the book is rife with classic photography of scooters old and new, with a special emphasis on notable design elements.

Vespa : An Illustrated History
by Eric Brockway
When it was first introduced in 1949, the Vespa scooter was an entirely new type of vehicle, the result of a flash of inspiration followed by innovative engineering and astute marketing. It captured the imagination of a generation and found a place in the hearts of all who rode it. The author tells the story of this remarkable two-wheeler, from its Italian origins through 40 years of development, with anecdotes about the machines and the colourful characters involved with them.

The Cult of Vespa
by Umberto Eco, Omar Calabrese, Lina Wertmuller, Francois Burkhardt
Here is the entertaining history of the Vespa on its 50th anniversary. Not many products achieve a fifty year life span, and the 50 years of Vespa are even more striking if one considers the period in which it came to existence. Many post-war inventions were forgotten when income rose and living standards improved, but Vespa developed from a utility vehicle into an international success, a 'cult-object', which has given rise to the creation of associations and collector's guilds world-wide. Text by Umberto Eco, Omar Calabrese, Lina Wertmuller, Francois Burkhardt, Maurizio Bertini, and many other celebrities.
