The Changing Face of the British Railways

£29.50

Available on back-order

Description

British Railways created some of the most distinctive and widely-recognised design imagery in post-war Britain – but there was often a significant difference between the way its image was imagined by professional designers and the ways it was actually experienced by passengers and other users. Such trade-offs between design ideals and their manifestations are explored here for the first time. The narrative covers many aspects of B.R.’s activities – including Sealink, property development and catering. Based on extensive original research and profusely illustrated, it provides new insights into the British railway scene and design in Britain more generally.

For those interested in Sealink, this is a must for their bookshelf.

Due to be published 31st July 2018 – available to pre-order.
