As most of you know, I loathe flying. It's a terrifying experience for me and my absolute least favorite means of getting from point A to B. My preferred method of travel always has been and will be by train. It's on my bucket list to ride the great railway routes of the world someday, but in the meantime I will settle for reading about them.

The Silver Star is a story about an "iconic railway car's journey from the American midwest to the remote Pilbara region of West Australia" from Canadian-based design studio Glasfurd and Walker. Their story comes beautifully bound and illustrated with photographs and maps that chart the railway car's history. Today, the Silver Star serves as a cafe in Port Hedland, Australia.
