The incredible transport paintings of Malcolm Root need little introduction for he has already gained a national reputation for the quality both of the art and the detail conveyed in all his pictures. His superb paintings evoke the times which many regard as the halcyon days of travel in Great Britain, each picture containing not only a wealth of period detail but mechanical information accurate enough to satisfy the most ardent specialist. In this way the artist imbues each painting which its own story, in many instances based upon the artist's boyhood memories from around Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk. Though the majority of images included in the book portray the age of steam, particularly steam railway engines, there are also paintings of many other types of transport on road, rail and sea, each set within the context of its times. For the transport aficionado, or for those who have a soft spot for the nostalgia evoked by these wonderful paintings, this book will provide hours of delight and endless reading pleasure.
