The book presents its history illustrated with a wide range of unpublished archival photographs and presents its current state in combination with future perspectives.

Main articles and interviews are written by Astrid Aarsen from Architectuurzaken. Article openers and portraits of the interviewed key-players of the Lijnbaan are taken by World Press Photo and Silver Camera Award winner Jerry Lampen.
