This delightful collection celebrates the heyday of British train travel, from the beaches of Brighton and the coast of Cornwall to the lochs of Scotland. Featuring 70 beautiful and classic posters, it presents a colorful and idealistic image of Britain at its best, with happy couples and families frolicking at the shore, in lush landscapes, and historical settings. Train enthusiast Michael Palin (of Monty Python fame) provides a witty, entertaining introduction and captions to the vintage art, created by graphic design greats such as Claude Buckle, Frank Mason, Ronald Lampiott, Jack Merriott, Tom Purvis, and Sydney Lee.
