This book was originally written and designed by the French-born American industrial designer Raymond Loewy (1893-1986), and selects the most modern, effective and dynamic locomotive design of the inter-war years, bridging the transition between steam and diesel. The dramatic use of illustration and typography combined with Loewy's very personal vision make the book a statement of a design philosophy in action.
