Om Great Brunel
Isambard Kingdom Brunel is a name synonymous with the heroic and inventive engineering of the Victorian era. His personal bravery, persuasive character and refusal to accept the conventional boundaries of his profession led him to a wide range of exceptional achievements. In this revised and updated edition, Chris Morris tracks down Brunel's legacy to provide an unrivalled visual celebration of the great man and his work. Alongside the graphic photography is a commentary which reveals Brunel to be as much a visionary as an engineer.
