    The international edition of PINBALL, a beautiful photo book by Argentinean photographer Santiago Ciuffo, is now available in 13 languages in the webshop of www.pinball-magazine.com. The book features a wide range of full-page photos of pinball machines in Argentina and the Argentinean pinball scene. See the photos below.

    Besides giving an inside look on pinball in Argentina, the book also showcases the often forgotten art on pinball machines. Ciuffo’s eye for detail is shown in photos of games with artwork by artists like Roy parker, George Molentin, Gordon Morison, Doug Watson, Christian Marche, Paul Faris, Greg freres, Kevin O’Connor and others.

    Being mostly a photo book the pages with text, describing a bit of pinball history and the situation in Argentina, are only a few. These text pages however are available in 13 different languages. The book itself contains English, French and German. The other 10 languages (Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Hungarian, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish) are available as separate 8-page supplements.

    Speaking of supplements: the book comes with a special supplement Issue of Pinball Magazine, featuring a 4-page interview with photographer Santiago Ciuffo in 12 languages, including photos that are not in the book. This magazine is also available as a free digital download on www.pinball-magazine.com.

    Special bonus:
    With the first 500 orders a free set of 10 exclusive postcards with photos by Ciuffo that were not published in the book will be included as well. These postcards will also be distributed separately at various pinball shows, but never as a set. See for more info: www.pinball-magazine.com.
    Please note: The book will ship in a special cardboard packaging, which should make sure the book won't get damaged during transport.

    Quoted from travisbmartin:

    I hope you do a fresh printing of Issue 1

    Thanks for your order Travis. I put up a subscription form on the PM website where those interested in a reprint of PM01 can leave their email address. If you haven't done so, please do. It is the easiest way for me to see how many people are interested and whether a reprint is justifyable. Thanks!

    Charlie from Spooky Pinball on Santiago Ciuffo's PINBALL book: "I received the book in the mail today and WOW... it is INCREDIBLE!!! Everyone involved did a tremendous job on this project! This is flat out the best pinball photography I've ever seen published. Absolutely amazing sir! We'll keep it here at the Spooky Pinball shop for all that visit to see." www.pinball-magazine.com

    Pinball News just published their review of Santiago Ciuffo's PINBALL book: http://www.pinballnews.com/learn/newpinballbook/

    #12 5 years ago

    The second batch shipped over a week ago and should be arriving in the USA early this week. In the mean time I collected some more feedback from pinball industry veterans (Roger Sharpe, Greg Freres, Jack Guarnieri and more to follow) and others as well on www.pinball-magazine.com.

    Nate HG + book.jpg
    "We received a book today. Younger son Nate (4) could not hide his excitement. He recognized couple of pinball machines from our small collection and happily took a picture with a new book.
    Thanks Pinball Magazine and Santiago for bringing pins back to life and promoting them to the young generations." - Teo

    #22 5 years ago

    Thanks for the feedback

    Quoted from vid1900:

    It would be cool if you packaged the next issue of the mag with the book to save on shipping

    I'm pretty sure by the time Issue 3 becomes (finally) available there will be something like a package deal.

    Quoted from calvin12:

    Got mine early this week, looks fantastic, but one corner got crushed in shipping.

    I'm sure we'll work something out. Just got back from a few days out of the office. Keep an eye on your email.

    #24 5 years ago
    Quoted from Dbaum88:

    I LOVE all pinball books....these will be nice additions.

    very nice collection of books. Looks similar to mine

    #26 5 years ago

    I already posted some pics here but I also put up a feedback gallery on www.pinball-magazine.com. The gallery will expand as more photos are coming in (worth to take a look).

    Friday May 30th 2014 I'll ship out the next batch of books. All orders coming in up to Friday morning (GMT) will ship in this batch.

    #27 5 years ago

    For those interested: A new batch of book orders will ship out this Friday. Pinball Magazine usually ships their orders once a month, so ordering now gets you still in the batch that ships this week. See www.pinball-magazine.com for all info, reviews, feedback and much more.

    #28 5 years ago

    So the next shipment of books was scheduled for tomorrow. Now it turns out the DHL drop off office is closed due to a festive holiday. So it will ship Monday. The good news: you can still order the book and be in this batch: www.pinball-magazine.com

    #29 5 years ago

    Quoted from spiroagnew:

    Will make sure to post a write-up of Mr. Ciuffo's book when it arrives...but from early reports, I won't be disappointed!

    Congratulations on your find regarding Roger's book. I'm interested to read what you will have to say about Santiago Ciuffo's book. There has been feedback of people reminding the book about Roger's book, which I think is a great compliments. However, I do realize they may not have been looking into Roger's book for a while and / or as detailed as you recently did. Looking forward to hear what you'll have to say.

    #35 5 years ago

    Th third batch shipped out yesterday. The next batch is expected to ship out early July.
    In the mean time I was interviewed by Charlie Emery for Spooky Pinball Podcast # 51, which became available today. Randy Parlow of ColorDMD is also on the show as a special guest. Check it out at http://www.spookypinball.com/podcast-2/

    Quoted from spiroagnew:

    My book arrived the other day, safe and sound on Canadian soil. Amazing work. Simply amazing, from top to bottom. I've written up a review here:

    FEATURE: Santiago Ciuffo's Pinball


    Thanks for writing and sharing this review Rob. Very thorough and in-depth.

    #38 5 years ago

    The feedback gallery for the PINBALL book by Santiago Ciuffo on www.pinball-magazine.com is becoming more and more interesting. It includes photos of numerous pinball industry veterans like Steve Ritchie, Barry Oursler, John Popadiuk and many others, as well as feedback from non industry people who ordered the book. Take a look, you may be missing out on something great! www.pinball-magazine.com

    Quoted from j_m_:

    your boxes may be great to ship short distances (within EU and the UK), but everything that I've received on this side of pond has taken quite a beating.

    Thanks for pointing this out. I'm already using the thickest carboard packaging avialable. Obviously once the packages are shipped they are 'out of my hands' but that doesn't mean I'm not looking after them. I've had pristine packages arriving and a few that were dropped, or who knows what happens with them. I'll be discussing this with DHL tomorrow.

    #42 5 years ago

    There are still a few free sets of 10 exclusive postcards available for those who order Santiago Ciuffo's PINBALL book on www.pinball-magazine.com.

    Quoted from perryd:

    book is pretty good, however, Mine also arrived damaged on corners and inside contents the pages or coming unglued at the seams as well (manufacturer's defect). Contacted Jon a couple of times many weeks ago and attached pics, but still no replacement has been delivered or attempted. Would cost a ton to ship item back to him since I am not sending bulk book rate...

    Actually, I'm working on that and you're on my list. Replacement books will actually ship from USA and the damaged copies can be shipped to an address inside USA as well. I'm just not that often in my office these days, so I don't have as much time as i would like to have to straighten things like this.
