Publisher's description: This engaging book provides a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the seasonal magic of The New York Botanical Garden's annual Holiday Train Show. Exhibition Itinerary: The New York Botanical Garden, Bronx November 2016-January 2017 Published in association with The New York Botanical Garden The New York Botanical Garden is the magical setting of one of the city's most celebrated winter traditions: The Holiday Train Show. This must-see exhibition features dozens of locomotives, freight trains, and trolleys zipping through a whimsical landscape populated by more than 150 models of beloved city landmarks, composed entirely of leaves, twigs, seeds, pinecones, and other plant parts. Together with his team at Applied Imagination, Paul Busse and the horticulturists at The New York Botanical Garden create a fanciful tribute to the beauty of New York's iconic architecture, using natural materials and unbridled imagination. Behind-the-scenes photographs reveal the process of bringing the exhibition to life, and detailed views of each building reveal the artistry and ingenuity that goes into each architectural element. Essays explore the engineering of the tracks and bridges as well as notable featured trains. Dazzling full-page views of the entire spectacle make the experience come alive for readers.
