OVERSIZED BOOK - 13  X 10
This pictorial tribute to a bygone era in railway advertising art brings out the full flavour and romance of travel in the grand manner - the great expresses of the past, the sumptuous carriages, the pride and status of the old railway companies.
The full impact of graphic poster design was not felt until the perfection of lithographic techniques in the 1890s but, as the careful selection of early advertising material dating back to 1804 shows, the railway poster has a long and venerable history. The typographical extravaganzas of the Victorian period gave way to the rumbustuous pictorial art of John Hassall, the elegance of Frank Newbould and the bold and adventurous work of E. McKnight Kauffer and Roger Broders, as well as the ingenuity and charm of a host of long-forgotten artists.
Concentrating on the principal poster-producing regions of France, Britain and North America, this book brings out the changing nature of railway advertising activities and design over the years. It offers a unique and nostalgic glimpse into an enticing world of opulence, humour and pleasure, where streamlined trains speed along the track and the sun always shines on rail-borne holidaymakers.
