Orient Express: The King of Trains

Author(s): Sixtine Dubly


The illustrious Orient Express, "the king of trains and the train of kings," could carry passengers from Paris to Constantinople in 76 hours, thanks to Belgian engineer Georges Nagelmackers's winning combination of long- distance travel and refinement. Orient Express: The King of Trains is a photographic guide to the history and culture surrounding this mythic train and all that took place within, from its notable passengers including Tolstoy and Grace Kelly to the tales crafted by Hemingway and Agatha Christie. In 2016, during FIAC, the International Fair of Contemporary Art, a presentation at the Grand Palais in Paris will highlight the key elements of a trip on the famed rail line, featuring reinterpreted, limited-edition objects.
