These paintings, rich in imagination and atmosphere, appeared on postcards and posters of the day and were used to advertise the companies and their ships; and so was born a whole genre that produced tens of thousands of paintings which formed a wonderful record of the great era of the passanger liner." "Here, brought to life in more than 500 colourful postcards, are the ships on which so many of our predecessors sailed, as emigrants, soldiers or administrators in distant lands, or as tourists in days long passed. These cards, which are now highly collectable, show how steamships developed over the years, but they are also a fine tribute to the artists who painted them. A glossary of some 170 illustrators forms a valuable reference secton in the book and advice on collecting is also included."--BOOK JACKET." ;
