Eugene Byrne’s BRUNEL out now!

February 14th, 2014 · No Comments

BristolCon loves Eugene Byrne, and as Bristolians we’re obliged to also love the bewhiskered engineer with the fancy name who gifted us the Clifton Suspension Bridge and the SS Great Britain. He was responsible, too, for the South Devon Railway, which you may have seen in the news this week, looking less than it’s usual glorious self.

Eugene has written a Pocket Giants guide to Brunel, and I quote:

How would you like to KNOW MORE about one of the greatest ENGINEERS in HISTORY, a man who had STYLE and SHOWMANSHIP in SPADES, who pioneered RAILWAYS and took time out to build the FIRST REAL MODERN SHIPS, a guy who could knock up a FLAT-PACK HOSPITAL with one hand while designing the WEIRD-LOOKING ROYAL ALBERT BRIDGE with the other?

Of COURSE you want to know! So steam on over to Eugene’s site to find out more.
