Description
The author of Transit Maps of the World—hailed as "pure catnip" by New York magazine—returns with this more focused look at the world's great railroads. From the Liverpool and Manchester Railway of 1830 to the proposed 2020 high-speed networks of China, Mark Ovenden offers a colorful smorgasbord of more than 500 rail maps, route guides, photos, and travel posters. Indeed, Ovenden notes the link between improved printing techniques, the need for frequently updated railroad service illustrations, and the opportunity for illustrators to experiment with promotional imagery, leading to the advent of the modern travel poster.
