Here's a book tip for the Dutch readers; the bookstore chain Boeken Voordeel has this great little book called "Hightech Machines 19e Eeuw" - it is filled with awesome technical drawings of steam engines, boilers, pumps, winches, hydraulic presses, fire engines, sewing machines, electric motors and other industrial madness.

The focus of the book really is the imagery - there is hardly any accompanying text other than what the machine is, sometimes who built it and what year it was completed.. Don't expect any in-depth coverage of the various technologies, but it is a nifty little reference guide.

The book has 331 pages and a little over 300 drawings. It is a fantastic source of inspiration if you want to draw your own machinery!

Oh, and the best part; it only cost €4.95!
