This beautifully illustrated book brings together for the first time the myriad art works used by aviation companies, flying schools and manufacturers to promote their products over the twentieth century. Commissioned by the leading aviation companies, many of these advertisements were visually striking and highly innovative. In black and white at the onset of flying in this country, as aviation developed the nation's top artists were engaged to provide colour art works for use on the covers of magazines. This book will trace the development of these works from pre-First World War up to the present day, presenting a nostalgic look back across the twentieth century.show more
