Music by Cusic

Cusic’s text traces Churchill’s life and career, track­ing every ref­er­ence the author found to music and song. We range from the march­es, dit­ties and Gilbert & Sul­li­van Churchill loved to the pow­er­ful­ly inspi­ra­tional.

Triumph Cars: The Whole Story, the Last Word: Coming in September

Triumph Cars: The Whole Story, the Last Word: Coming in September

Announc­ing the return of Tri­umph Cars: The Com­plete Sto­ry. One of the best books I ever wrote (actu­al­ly co-wrote, with the great Gra­ham Rob­son), arrives in Sep­tem­ber from  Veloce Pub­lish­ing in Eng­land. This is the finest edi­tion ever. It con­tains scores of new full col­or car por­traits of great Tri­umphs from the 1920s to the last TR8s of the 1980s. To order a copy at a guar­an­teed pre-pub­li­ca­tion price, go to Ama­zon (USA) or Ama­zon (UK).
