Europe Express - A Grand Tour Through Time
A tender journey through the Europe of yesteryear
Literary journalist Dirk Leyman has been an avid collector of vintage travel concertinas for years on end. There used to be a time when all self-respecting tourists and souvenir hunters took these concertinas home from their holidays. Nowadays they have become melancholic relics of a long-gone era. Europe Express. A grand tour through time offers a selection of Dirk Leyman's impressive collection of postcard booklets and brings the heyday of carefree travel back to life. Philippe Debeerst photographed all booklets and brochures for this book.
Europe Express travels from the interwar period to the eighties, from San Marco in Venice to the utopian world of the former Soviet Union. The book has become a tender journey through the Europe of yesteryear. It is a breath-taking trip down memory lane, which will please the armchair traveller, the globetrotter, the photo fan and the typo geek.
