about

The beautiful concertina book folds out to a stunning 54 inch panorama detailing the history of trains and locomotives from the very first railroads and machines to sustainability in the twenty-first century and beyond! A brilliant wraparound cover details the notable benchmarks in the history and mythology of trains. Golden Cosmos was set up in 2010 as a collborative moniker for German artistic couple Daniel Doltz and Doris Freigofas. Their deep knowledge of traditional printmaking techniques and experiences in self-publishing that have won them widespread critical acclaim in illustration circles made them the perfect choice for our trademark concertina series. Their bold use of color and adeptness for shape and form recall the bold patterns and geometry of early Russian constructivism, with a nod to mid-century French commercial art. There is no doubt that this will be a beauty!

Editorial Reviews

This is a good choice for classroom libraries and school libraries who serve a slightly older crowd. The information on trains around the world and at various points in history is perfect for transportation units.- Elizabeth Hadwin, Shreve Memorial LibraryA constantly shifting single image that is both complex and lively. The illustrators deftly draw your attention to subplots that are packed with character and readily identifiable motifs that ensure the book retains a strong narrative.-It's Nice That
