Description

Maps have long held a fascination for travellers and would-be travellers alike. Drawing on fascinating and unique material from the British Airways archive, curator Paul Jarvis focuses on the beautiful map artwork used over nearly 100 years of history to chart our voyages through the skies - from early adverts to twenty-first-century on-board moving maps - and the vital maps and charts used by pilots and navigators.

The progression of artistic styles used through the decades and the use of maps, technical or stylised, to present vital information or to promote the appeal of air travel is presented in striking full colour. Authorised by British Airways and with a foreword by Keith Williams, the Executive Chairman of British Airways, this book shows the enduring power of maps to spark our imagination.
