Deus Ex Machina   $89

The House of Simple Pleasures Deus ex machina is Latin for 'god out of the machine.' It's a plot device whereby a seemingly unsolvable problem is suddenly and abruptly cleared with the unexpected intervention of a new character. Our friend Brian Awitan of Alpha Industries turned us on to this beautiful book made by Deus.. They make custom motorcycles and spend a good deal of their time celebrating a custom bike culture that first appeared in Europe and America in the 1940s.

This tome is three hundred pages of hardback, laminated, dust-jacketed, internally-combusted, gravity-fed, hand-crafted, wordsmithed goodness ready to jet into your sweaty mits. A visual history of the first five years of Deus Ex Machina and the bikes, boards, beats, broads and beefhearts that have passed this way. We're carrying a dozen of this limited run of first editions.

12 x 12 x 1" and 260 pp (approx), full color. Black hardcover with white foil stamped lettering and matte-laminated dust jacket folded into a poster.
