Faithful to the legend - 30 years of passion

A gift for our 30th anniversary

A book is a concrete object, which attests to a point of view, which cannot be rewritten or denied.  If the Internet now plays a major role in the search for essential information necessary to the development of new models, books and brochures that Benoît has collected since long time before the start of the business, are the first refuge, the first and the most reliable source. The one that also arouses so many sensory emotions. The choice of this medium was obvious.

The idea had been in Benoît's head for a long time: a file opened on his laptop in 2010 called “the 20 years book” confirms it. The stars were not favorable and LMM's mascot is still a racing snail, so he got to work since few months only. And we can now confirm that the work is being finalized.

In the book, we look back over the adventures over the three decade of our small business since its creation happy often, unhappy sometimes.

Benoît a rouvert toutes les boîtes et piocher dans ses souvenirs pour en sortir le meilleur et parfois le pire. On a dû remettre les choses à leur place, les dates dans le bon ordre.

Benoît has opened all the boxes (in the literal and figurative sense of the word) and picks in his memories to bring out the best and sometimes the worst. We had to put things in their place, the dates in the right order.

We wish to show the first printed version for final checking before printing in Coulaines on March, 6th. The printing made by ITF in Mulsanne will be finished under 2 weeks.

This is a book 100% made in Sarthe except if we subtract the Southern west of France origins of Jean-Marc Teissèdre who kindly accepted to write the preface, those English of Ray Toombs, our translator and the German spirit of the pictures taken by Blacky during all these years.

Through this little story of LE MANS miniatures, we travel in time and space. It is more a start point than a final point to the LMM’s story, but with lots of suspension points…

It will have been certainly lots of work; it is like going in search of our “Madeleine de Proust”. We did our best so that you can have as much pleasure to gift yourself and to discover it as we did when writing.
