A publishing house specialising in limited editions, Primer Books, is renowned for producing works of art that are prized possessions amongst collectors of fine books.

High quality art, aesthetics and design are the hallmarks of this organisation. The publishers employ these elements when carefully and thoughtfully choosing their subject material and authors.


“While the sound of a Ducati can’t be replicated in print, the beauty sure can. I can’t imagine there is a Ducati enthusiast in the world that would not cherish this book as a worthy treasure.”

Trevor Hedge - MCNews.com.au

“For those of you who love a feast for the eyes, this is a book without parallel… For the discerning Ducati lover, there is possibly no better gift or living room piece.”

Rennie Scaysbrook - CycleNews.com

“Stunning doesn’t cover it: Phil Aynsley has had access to the factory and collections the rest of us can only dream about. Classics, racers, modern – they’re all here plus non-motorcycling products from the Ducati family’s era. A monster of a book…”

Greg Pullen - Benzina magazine

Aynsley captures emotion in metal. I can look at an Aynsley photo of bevel gears, or a crankcase casting, a desmo rocker arm or a drum brake assembly, and I see not just the particular shape of the metal but the talent and dedication of the designers, the tool
makers, the foundry workers and the machinists who created it
