Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

tells of the passion for flight with an array of 102 rare posters spanning the years of Early Flight, World War I, The Golden Age of Aviation, and World War II. Originally published in Fall 2000 in conjunction with the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service companion exhibition, these vibrant, colorful, hallmark designs each on their own full page, provide an artistic and historical retrospective. The late Ambassador Henry Serrano Villard (1900u1996), a statesman, philanthropist, and scholar, is considered to have been one of the world's leading authorities on early aviation. The book is based largely on Mr. Villard's never-before-published personal accounts from attending worldly early aviation events. Through his eloquent, graceful writing, he leaves a legacy of love and understanding of man and flight. 102 full-color illustrations with accompanying historical text.
