By Keith Lovegrove
Keith Lovegrove surveys the history, culture and design of railroads and trains from the early days of the Industrial Revolution through the 20th century golden age of the Zephyr and the Broadway Limited to rail travel's postwar decline and subsequent rebirth. Railroad explores the design challenges that faced railroads throughout the world. The work of various engineers, architects and interior designers is showcased and demonstrates how they rose to the challenge of creating a visual vocabulary for railroading. Topics include train interiors and exteriors, sleeping and dining cars, corporate logos, uniforms, plates and silverware, graphics, advertisements and even such ephemera as ticket stubs and timetables. Together, all of these things continue to color our image of what it means to ride the rails.
Also included is the roster of celebrated trains-the majestic transcontinental routes that criscrossed the US, the storied Orient Express, the present-day technological wonders of Japan's bullet trains. Keith Lovegrove examines all the details of railroading from an aesthetic as well as an engineering point of view. Railroad will appeal to a broad audience ranging from train buffs to anyone interested in how design shapes and reflects transportation and our experience of travel. It is a fascinating blend of nostalgia, human interest and contemporary design studded with over 250 illustrations.
