Goodbye Steam • Jean Michel Hatmann • 1966

Here is the cover of a book, published by FranckH, of Stuttgart, during 1966. The book is a classic of the 1960s, with super contrasty black and white images, and with pictorial endpapers, front and back

The images were taken on railways in France, Germany, and Switzerland. The book records the last days of steam

There are some lovely pictures of the make-ready associated with steam locomotives…a bit like the first half of Jean Mitry’s classic railway film, Pacific 231 (1949)

And a few colour reproductions to provide variety, contrast and drama

The book is a commercial versiation on Derek Birdsall’s, 17 Graphic Desingners, London (1963)
