Orient Express: The History of a Legend

$80.00 Inc GST
Code: PER019
Product Details:

The first train to connect Paris to Constantinople - the gateway to the Orient and epitome of all its associated desires and fantasies - the Orient Express was an immediate success. Quickly nicknamed 'the king of trains, the train of kings', it had already become a legend in its own time.


This unique train and its celebrated passengers (both real and fictional) have become one of the great cultural icons of our times and have helped to create a limitless source of stories and fantasies to feed our imaginations. It's a story told here through fabulous new photographs of the restoration workshops where the historic train carriages are being brought back to life, through archive photos of famous and exotic destinations, and portraits of the most famous passengers who were lucky enough to climb aboard.


Book Features:

  • This beautifully illustrated book captures the history, the legends and the unique style of the most famous train on earth: The Orient Express.
  • With never-before-seen archival material.
  • With a preface by Sir Kenneth Branagh.

216 colour and 119 b/w images
