トレインイロ

Trainiro_2

 最近は、鉄道に関係する本がたくさん出るなあと思っていたが、これは異色。

 朝日出版から刊行された、「トレインイロ」(下東史明)。

 列車のカラーを紹介する本なのだが、誌面に鉄道車両は一切登場しない。1ページごとに、ひとつの車両のカラーリングが表現され、ひとことコメントがある。それだけ。車両の形は再現していないので、各ページのデザインはイメージに過ぎない。それでも、不思議なことに知っている車両であれば、ひと目でその姿が目に浮かぶ。

 おそらく、僕が鉄道好きだということは関係がないのだろう。特に興味がない人でも、普段慣れ親しんでいる車両であれば、そのページを見るだけで、車両のイメージが沸くはずだ。

 僕たちの記憶は、「イロ」によって記号化されているんだなあと、実感した。

 テツっぽく、正確な色彩が使われているのではなく、記憶の色を使っているのが面白い。たとえば、東海道新幹線300系は、700系など他の新幹線車両よりも、イエローがかったホワイトで表現されている。0系と間違えたのでなければ、経年劣化による黄ばみを表現したのだろう。そんな、細かい表現が楽しい。

 鉄道趣味という世界を超えて、楽しめるアート本に仕上がっているこの本。

 作者は、広告会社勤務のコピーライター&デザイナーだそうだ。

 イロの世界に興味のある人に、お勧めします。

名古屋の某書店で「秘境駅Ⅲ」の隣に平積みされてました。
短い車両紹介の文がビミョーにツボをついてて笑いました^^;

こんにちは。
あのコメント、面白いですよね。
僕もかなり楽しみました。少々間口が狭すぎるような気も、ちょっとだけしましたが……。

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I'm looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very web smart so I'm not 100% certain. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to everything. Do you have any suggestions for novice blog writers? I'd really appreciate it.
