About this title


Hard to Find book

From Library Journal:

This sophisticated and charming book edited by two Swiss architects surveys the phenomenon of streamlining in transportation design during the first half of the 20th century. It covers ships, trains, planes, and automobiles as well as dirigibles and motor scooters. With its generous illustrations and succinct essays, it reads more like the catalog of a museum exhibition than a straightforward historical text. The photographic material, including a ten-page color portfolio, is especially valuable?chock-full of period detail. Well priced, this book serves sophisticated tastes and will be a fine addition to specialized collections.?Peter S. Kaufman, Boston Architectural Ctr.
