Cruise: Identity, Design and Culture

Cruise: Identity, Design and Culture Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cruise delightfully recalls a time of gracious travel, as well as the modern-day evolution of cruising at sea. It explores the design and culture of cruise ships from the golden age of the interwar period, up to the present when cruise ships have come to embrace "entertainment architecture." Packed full of illustrations of all aspects of cruise ship design—interiors, entertainment, travel posters, and other ephemera—this timely book also documents the current renaissance in cruise vacations.Traveling by cruise ship, especially between the wars and into the '50s, was the most luxurious and stylish form of transport available. Many of the greatest liners were built during that time, including France's Normandie, whose Art Deco interior was one of the most lavish—and beautiful—ever created. This up-to-date visual history of ocean travel, complete with full illustrations and a lively survey of every aspect of sailing on the high seas, will appeal to and delight a broad audience including cruise ship enthusiasts, designers, and nostalgia buffs.
