Praise for Volume 9: Rails Across America

Posted by: Andy Smith – Date: Monday, October 28, 2019

Throughout the pages in this book, American railway posters represent some of the best creativity and graphic design found within the genre (just look at Sascha Maurer’s creations in this volume advertising skiing and beaches alike).

American railroad posters visually engaged our nation in their own time.  Today, as their artistic impact accelerates, they continue to excite collectors, designers and scholars as reminders of snapshot views and cherished wonders of a by-gone era.

Volume 9: Rails Across America takes a journey around the USA from the east to the west coast. The result is a stunning artistic guide to North American destinations and railway poster heritage.  With the support from the Newberry Foundation in Chicago, Boston Public Library, The California State Railroad Museum and of Swann Galleries in New York this volume contains much new research. Several of the new posters have been uncovered from unlikely sources and will certainly be of great interest to collectors and enthusiasts.
