What is ITALIAN MOTOR magazine?

ITALIAN MOTOR magazine is a magazine operated, published, written and photographed principally  by James Adam Bolton - freelance journalist, photographer, fluent Italian speaker and past resident of Italy for many years, ex motorcycle shop lackey, ex punk/indie guitarist, and owner of SaraGreta Publishing - with the help of some talented freelancers and friends. The magazine is the maximum written and visual expression of his passion for all things with engines that have been built in Italy, no matter how many wheels it has - though in truth, mainly two…

The magazine is currently B5 digest size, that is 240mm H x 170mm W in size, and printed in the UK by experts. The cover stock is 200 gsm, and the pages are 100gsm. The magazine is currently saddle stitched, and printed in glorious full four colour. We send out in strong mailer bags made from recycled polythene. Any other products we send out are packaged safely using RECYCLED materials, jiffy bags, bubble warp etc.

Your prices are in UK currency - can I still purchase using my own country's currency?

Yes of course. Paypal automatically converts the price to your currency at checkout, so you don't have to worry. The exact amount you pay in your own currency will depend on the exchange rate at the time. Prices are in our native currency to keep things simple, so we can spend more time putting together a decent magazine rather than dealing with time-sapping admin stuff..

If you want to know exactly how much the price is in your own currency, use the currency converter below, and which updates every two hours.

In our experience, it all comes out in the wash….

Do you ship worldwide?

YES - all magazines and products are shipped worldwide to any country. Unless stated, none of the products are sent via tracked shipping. If you want or need your order to be sent via tracked shipping, please contact us first for a price.

*Royal Mail recently increased the prices they charge to use their fine service. That's them, not us...
