The Little Book of Mini is a pocket-sized and beautifully illustrated celebration of the iconic car.

For more than 60 years, the Mini has been one of the most beloved and instantly recognisable cars on the road. From its humble beginnings with the British Motor Corporation in 1959, to the modern BMW-backed models of today, the Little Book of Mini tells the story of the car and the unique culture that has built up around it.

Exploring the evolution of Mini design from the original two-door model – the most popular British car of all time – through to the diverse range of Minis available today, this book is an exceptionally designed tribute to the marque, and the people who helped create it.
