3.0 out of 5 stars See the world but get a ticket first 18 Jan 2003
By Robin Benson TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
With all the pictures taken from consumer ads of the forties and fifties this book tries too hard to cover travel graphics. Just under half the pages are devoted to air travel which leaves very few pages for other forms of travel transport, buses get ten pages, trains get thirty-two, shipping gets eighteen, trains and shipping alone could have produced a book each.

Taschen's 'Icon' series are inexpensive all colour paperbacks that are meant to give you a 'feel' of the subject, they are images only, either illustrations or photos and although I have bought better books in the series for the price 'See the World' is still value for money. Most of the pictures come from the excellent 'All-American ads 40s' (600 pages) and 'All-American ads 50s' (926 pages) both edited by Jim Heimann.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Collection of Images on Air Travel's Glory Days 19 Oct 2004
By EY - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This collection takes you back to a time when air travel had novelty and a a sense of mystique. The very high quality illustrations depict a more innocent time when you could say that air travel was something special--something not entirely out of reach, yet filled with an allure that has since been lost. Sadly, we probably will not see those days again.
4.0 out of 5 stars Nice little book... 14 Sep 2012
By Michael Valdivielso - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Mostly focused on air travel - has a few images on train related travel ads and even some boat ads. Most images have a date and the company that created them but that is it. Think art book - not even a intro. Nice, tiny coffee table book or breakfast table book.
