The best selling pinball book of the past five years!
Argentinean photographer Santiago Ciuffo has captured the Argentinean pinball scene in a wonderful series of full page photos. This book shows his best work. The photos in this book mostly focus on bingo and pinball machines manufactured between the mid ‘50s and mid ‘80s by companies like Bally, Williams, Stern Electronics and D. Gottlieb, as well as some rare games from small European manufacturers.
Besides giving an inside look on pinball in Argentina, the book also showcases the often forgotten art on pinball machines. Ciuffo's eye for detail is shown in photos of games with artwork by artists like Roy parker, George Molentin, Gordon Morison, Doug Watson, Christian Marche, Paul Faris, Greg freres, Kevin O'Connor and others.
For the first time ever a book on pinball is being published in thirteen different languages, covering some general pinball history, as well as interesting stories about the history of pinball in Argentina. Inside the book you will find the English, French and German translations. The other nine languages (Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish) are available as additional supplements (send an email if you're interested).
Much to Ciuffo’s surprise, his original book, published in a limited quantity in Argentina in December 2013, was received very well - not only pinball enthusiasts, but also by people who appreciate high quality photography. This book could be the start of a highly successful international career for Ciuffo.
This international edition (208 pages) contains even more photos than were published in the original first Argentinean print (180 pages). It also comes with an 80-page special edition of Pinball Magazine, featuring an exclusive interview with Ciuffo in all twelve languages listed above. This special supplemennt magazine contains exclusive photos by Ciuffo which do not appear in the book.
To quote Stern Pinball’s president Gary Stern, who was able to take a sneak peak at a black and white proof copy of the magazine: “I love it.”
