2.0 von 5 Sternen Not what I expected
As much as I tried to like this book, it really didn't do it for me. The book was more a story about Wally Byam than Airstream. I was looking for something more about the evolutionary history of the land yacht and the more common experiences of their owners. Too bad - the book about Airstream is still to be written.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Airstream: The History of the Land Yacht (Taschenbuch)
Book Description Sleek and shiny, Airstream trailers have been turning heads on the highways since they first started caravanning across America in the 1930s. These "aluminum skinned, gleaming silver bullets" are currently enjoying a revival in popularity. Praised for their clean lines and timeless aesthetic, movie stars and design buffs are snapping up these vintage beauties. Airstream-equal parts travelogue, cultural history, and biography of Wally Byam, Airstream's charismatic inventor-celebrates the trailer's enduring appeal as an icon of simple, aerodynamic living. A dazzling array of images tell the story of how Byam, the father of modern trailer travel, created less a product than an entire culture. From the Eiffel Tower to the pyramids of Giza, from the Acropolis to the Golden Gate Bridge, Airstream caravans continue to travel to the far reaches of the earth. Amazing photographs from the Airstream archives document this metallic nomad's significant place in the history of design, from its streamlined origins to its current vogue. Airstream has always been synonymous with the freedom of the open road. Today the dream lives on.
About the Author Bryan Burkhart is a designer, storyteller, and Airstream enthusiast, who owns a restored 1962 Airstream Flying Cloud. He lives in San Francisco.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Superb graphics, archival photos, and historical text!, 27. März 2000

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Airstream: The History of the Land Yacht (Taschenbuch)
This coffee table book is a great gift - striking images, an original topic, really interesting text, and it's reasonably priced. The book follows the inventor of the Airstream, an eccentric wanderer named Wally Byam, as he spreads his gospel ("Adventure is where you find it, any place, every place, except at home in the rocking chair.") and organizes Airstream caravans around America and around the planet. We see these Zelig-like aluminum torpedoes with every famous backdrop: the Egyptian pyramids, rice fields in Thailand, the leaning tower of Pisa, and Red Square in communist USSR. The photos are at once kitschy and nostalgic and hokey and beautiful, and the layout of the book allows each image to really resonate before leading you to another page or chapter in the life of Wally Byam's "land yacht." A terrific piece of Americana, and a great, reasonable find...

5.0 von 5 Sternen It's a far cry from trailer trash . . ., 28. März 2000

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Airstream: The History of the Land Yacht (Taschenbuch)
After flipping through just a few pages of this amazing book, you'll want to trade in your daily routine for the life of a global nomad. But if circumstances won't allow you to hit the road in your own shiny silver bullet right away, Airstream's fantastic words and pictures will provide a wonderful escape. You'll travel vicariously to exotic locales from Egypt to Moscow and will be quoting "Byam-isms" in no time like "Adventure is where you find it, any place, every place, except at home in the rocking chair."
