Railway Maps of the World

While you pass away time in your cubicle, dream of your next vacation in a world far away. From your boss. Mark Ovenden follows up his bestseller, Transit Maps of the World, with Railway Maps of the World. Here, Ovenden presents historical and contemporary railway maps and posters in an exquisitely designed book. Appealing to the world traveler, amateur geographer or sophisticated collector, Ovenden divides Railway Maps of the World into two parts.

Part 1 chronicles the development of railways chronologically, from the Liverpool and Manchester Railway of 1830 to the proposed 2020 high speed networks in China. Included in the first part are railway ads, travel posters and station wall maps. Part 2 collects atlas maps from over a hundred countries, supplementing them with various facts and history of the railways. Complement the bookcase of your favorite travel buff, graphic designer or historian with Railway Maps of the World. Available here.
