6. The perfect excuse to time traveling
Would you like to travel as they did at the time of the mighty locomotives? Do you want to see how the landscape changes to the tranquil pace of an old train? Would you mind looking into the entrails of those machines? Well, then you better open this impressive book and let Brian Floca tells you the story of this family on a transcontinental railroad trip through the USA back in 1869. The illustrations, the details of the journey, and the technical details are simply gorgeous; and they will take you to the great era of transportations. It will also be worth taking a look at Moonshot, the story of the Apollo 11 in 1969 in the first trip to the moon.
Here you have a video of the author explaining, from his work desk, the creative process he follows when making the books.
