Hardback at last!

Check out this little Italian stallion:

This is MORTACCI, the Italian edition of DEADFOLK which will be out over there on September 12th (or so I'm told) from Baldini Castoldi Dalai. Believe me - it is a thing of beauty. And it's in hardback! I love the Mustang on the front (which, as the whole world knows, is the American version of the Ford Capri). I just wish I knew what it all means. Or some of it. Or even just the title. Hang on, I'll go look that up... Erm, it says it means "Mortacci". That don't really help. Mind you, if you plugged "Deadfolk" into an English to Italian dictionary you'd probably get "Deadfolk".

Anyway, it's fucking great!

Oh, and Italian readers: welcome to Mangel.

Cool bananas!

I can't help but imagine that dear Royston's vernacular must have been a bit of a bitch to translate!

Fantastic stuff! Man, those Italians really know how to do covers, don't they? Makes it look like one of those great 70s indie movies.

Thanks guys! Yeah, I can see the 70s movie look. BADLANDS or something. Quite apt.

oh, that is so cool--i love the way it looks all spaghetti westernish, the wide open landscapes of southwest England! seriously, a BEAUTIFUL cover.

Hey fellow bloggers,

Thanks for the fresh info and pics. I am also a car enthusiast and I tried to materialize that by putting together a collection of info and car photos on all the most important brands. While I covered manufacturers such as BMW or Audi, I am also focusing on smaller or less famous companies.

Daihatsu is one of them. They’re not the most impressive brand name in the car manufacturer’s world, but they do come up with some nice models. Here they are: Ford 300, Ford Capri, Ford Cortina, Ford Crown Victoria, Ford Escape, Ford Ka, Ford Sierra

If you’d like to contribute with photos or resources, please let me know.

Enjoy your day!
