This exciting book has a threefold quality. First it is a carefully chosen collection of beautiful and detailed paintings, which are an accurate record of the British transport scene during the twentieth century, and one which can be an excellent reference book for the many vintage transport enthusiasts. Second it is a nostalgic reminder of those great days when travel was a new leisure pastime, which was heralded as an exciting adventure, and a source of enjoyment. The book harks back to the heyday of British-manufactured vehicles, not only for land travel, but at sea and in the air as well. Third, this publication will give an endearing pleasure, not only from the beauty of the pictures, but also from a certain sense of fun, typified by some surprises hidden among the pictures! Malcolm Root was born in Colchester in 1950 and still lives in nearby Halstead. From an early age he combined his love of art with a fascination for all kinds of transport. On leaving school he entered the printing industry and in 1981 took the decision to become a full-time professional artist. Commissions followed, particularly for railway scenes, and in 1983 he was elected a full member of the Guild of Railway Artists. Malcolm
