Translated into English by Stephen D. Smith (publisher of The Leaning Girl).

From the publisher:

The Beauty, Leon knows her well. He can anticipate her every quirk and nuance better than anyone. And why wouldn't he, after so many years and miles traveled together? The Beauty, or rather the 12.004, is a steam locomotive; an elegant lady of speed, sophisticated mechanics, and grace, the pride of her mechanic.

But times have changed. Electrical transports are gaining ground, and The Beauty's days are numbered.

The Beauty is the English title of La Douce, the album François Schuiten realized only to quench his passion for trains in general, and type 12 in particular. On the occasion of the opening of the World Train museum in Brussels, Casterman offers all non-French speaking readers this extraordinary locomotive adventure invented by François Schuiten.

Schuiten, Francois
