  • Featuring 14 impressive train routes from around the globe, this title takes us to Japan’s record ­breaking bullet train, then slow down a little to experience an overnight journey on one of Britain’s last sleeper carriages and Australia's famous Ghan. Studying where and why these routes exist, and discovering facts about the people that keep the engines running, this fully illustrated book is a nostalgic ode to the golden age of train travel.

  • Size: 24 x 28 cm

  • gestalten continues to actively reimagine the way in which we approach publishing. With our extensive range of titles, we not only seek to enhance and to enrich our reader's lives, but to continually engage with the surrounding creative landscape. An origin story that began with a focus on the aesthetic, particularly that of graphic design and, over the last two decades, the scope of both our content and our expertise has widened. Today, using a myriad of observations of culture, people, art, and other intimate, inspirational informants, we document and anticipate vital movements in architecture, visual culture, design & fashion, escapism, food & beverages, travel, and contemporary art. In 2014, little gestalten joined the literary ranks and ensured that there was a place for readers of all ages within the world of gestalten.
