More About Normandie by John Maxtone-Graham
 
 
 
Overview
Normandie was unquestionably the most beautiful ocean liner ever built. The world s largest at the time, she also became the world s fastest. Her art deco interiors were unrivaled: capacious, elegant, and chic, decorated by teams of France s most talented artists. Yet Normandie was plagued with frustrations never attracting more passengers than the competition and tragically ending her days in flames at New York s Pier 88. Celebrated maritime historian John Maxtone-Graham confesses to a hypnotic fascination with Normandie. In this comprehensive volume, enriched by over 200 photographs and illustrations, he documents every aspect of the vessel s decorative antecedents, design, construction, and service. Always articulate, entertaining, and devastatingly well informed, Maxtone-Graham has created the definitive Normandie panegyric, a comprehensive and, at times, heartbreaking account of this fabled liner.
