The Fabulous Interiors of the Great Ocean Liners in Historic Photographs (Dover Maritime) Reviews
I would say that for anyone who likes the history of liners, or studies it, this is a great book to have. It is easy to read and understand and it goes in a chronological order describing some of the liners from different companies and nations, which allows the reader to compare and contrast them, as well as to appreciate the evolution of the design.
Very interesting to study through. Helpful for my project.
This is probably my favorite book on the great liners of all time. Why? Because there are sooooo many great photos you won't see anywhere else. And the format is large - so you can see the photos easily. I highly recommend this book to ship fans and also to lovers of great interior design. I only wish there was a sequel! One other thing I like about it is how it covers many ships that are lesser known. I only wish there was a photo of each ship's exterior, so you can see what ship he is showing you the inside of. GREAT book.
Most illustrated books about liners or ships of any nature focus on the exterior -- the shape of the bow, the stern and funnels -- maybe a few shots of the deck.
Wonderful book to add to your collection, if you're a fan of the older, well-crafted ocean liners.
Great book! But wish they would have colored the old black and white photos.
Great photo's of old Liners.
Great historical analysis of the interiors of famous ocean liners. This book was extremely helpful for a research project.
