Ocean Liners

£19.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Edition published to accompany the V&As exhibition Ocean Liners: Speed and Style' The great age of ocean travel has long since passed, but ocean liners remain one of the most powerful and admired symbols of modernity. No form of transport was as romantic, remarkable, or contested, and ocean liner design became a matter of national prestige as well as an arena in which the larger dynamics of global competition were played out. This beautifully illustrated book considers over a century of liner design: from the striking graphics created to promote liners to the triumphs of engineering, and from luxurious interiors to on board fashion and activities. Ocean Liners explores the design of Victorian and Art Deco floating palaces, sleek post-war liners as well as these ships impact on avant-garde artists and architects such as Le Corbusier.
