Before the First World War, the Hamburg-America Line, with 175 ships, was the largest merchant fleet in the world. With much of her fleet destroyed during the war, HAPAG spent the interwar years rebuilding, focusing on efficient, economic ships of medium size. Four ships were at the center of this effort: the Albert Baillin (named after the company's pre-war managing director), her sister ship Deutschland and two similar ships, the New York and the Hamburg. Known as the "famous four," these ships were reported to be the steadiest on the Atlantic and appear together on several posters. Fuss was a prolific designer for the Hamburg-America Line. The extensive body of work he created for the company in the 1930s and 40s takes on many different aspects of travelling by ship, from the vessels themselves to the exotic lands and seas through which the ships pass. This is the French version.
