DescriptionThis title offers an unique, beautifully illustrated and comprehensive history of the world's greatest railway maps, and the railways behind them. The irresistible follow-up to the cult favorite, "Metro Maps of the World", Mark Ovenden's new book is an extraordinary compendium of historical and contemporary railway maps and posters from every corner of the world. The history of the railway is the history of Britain - and France, and America, and Japan, and Russia, among many others. Featuring hundreds of images, covering two centuries of advertising, surveyors' maps, route guides, travel posters, photos, and Google Earth maps, this is a book brimming with history, anecdotes, facts, and data. It is a must-have guide for every train fanatic, armchair or ticketed, as well as lovers of graphic design, history and the romance of train travel.

Reviews for Great Railway Maps of the World

An excellent book for anyone who, like me, loves maps, the idea of traveling around by train or simply is curious about railway history. This is the sort of book you buy to give someone else but end up pouring over yourself and have to buy another copy to giveaway, or at least that's was my case. by Chris Saynor
