We sort of beamed when Jacky Ickx called the assembled journalists at the R8 press reveal in Paris "beautiful." Well, at least two of us did. At least we don't think it was all the pink bubbly... Anyway we were bumbling around the dusty corners of the World Wide Web this morning and found this fun little trinket in the University of North Texas Miniature Book Collection: it's a minitature (8cm high!) book on the life of the famed Belgian racing driver that could be earned by turning in stamps collected from packages of Franco-Suisse cheese. It's super-neat, and it also begs the question, how did Texas allow anything so small into its collection? Unless it's a mighty big collection of diminutive volumes. That must be it.
