Landscapes Under The Luggage Rack 1st and 2nd Editions NOW OUT OF PRINT

Both 1st and 2nd editions of Landscapes under the Luggage Rack have been out of print for several years now and we are working on a new 3rd edition due out in 2019. The Lost Art of the Carriage Print -using many of the prints from his personal collection, Greg Norden takes us on a nostalgic tour of Britain in the mid-20th century, before modern town planning and the motor car had exerted their baneful influence on the landscape. From the mid 1930s to the late 1960s, trains virtually became travelling art galleries and it is this period which forms the centerpiece of this book. Dividing the subject geographically, he takes us on a carriage seat tour and covers six regions featuring a variety of scenes - from fascinating views of towns and cities to pleasant villages in rural areas; from the rugged mountains of Scotland and Wales to the numerous ports and resorts around the coast of Britain, dwelling on such pleasures as a railway outing to the seaside. He also devotes a chapter to the artists and the artwork and another to the collecting of carriage prints today. With its well researched, often humorous narrative, 200 illustrations with full captions, biographies of the artists and comprehensive print listings, this definitive book will appeal to railway enthusiasts and historians, art and antique collectors, lovers of watercolour and commercial art and all beguiled by images of the landscape during the age of steam.
