A total of about 3,000 illustrations and plates are included! This is a compilation of the activities of Eiji Mitooka, who revolutionized railway design.
Mainly on railway vehicles, design drawings of transportation such as buses and ships, perspective drawings of buildings such as station buildings, commercial facilities, and resort facilities, and illustrations for advertisement and product design are posted.
This book doesn’t dare to make a collection of works that show the paintings neatly arranged, but with the image of a gallery, the paintings put in frames one by one are lined up closely. The reason why he chose this method is that the author wants you to realize how many pictures you have to draw to design one vehicle.
