Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Often it takes an artist to show us that the familiar is in fact truly remarkable. Jeffrey Milsteins elegant photographs of commercial airliners have quickly become contemporary icons, published in 2005 in "photomagazin, Graphis Photo Annual," and "American Photography 21," and winning first place in the PDN Digital Photography Contest. Milsteins meticulously composed large-format photos of airliners in flight reveal the beauty and power of these sleek, complex machines and restores some of the glamour to the experience of air travel. An eloquent foreword by Walter J. Boyne helps the reader appreciate these amazing technological wonders, and the book gives technical data on each airplane pictured. Not just for the aviation buffs but for anyone who appreciates the sublime beauty possible in even the most complex technology.

Book News Annotation:

Each plane is shown by itself on a white page, most from below; a few images occupy multiple pages afforded by foldouts, and a few are shown from the side. These color photos by Milstein, showcased in an oversize format (12.5x12.5"), are motivated by his love of their design. A two-page chart identifies each craft and some of its specifications. Walter J. Boyne, former director of the National Air and Space Museum, Washington, D.C. wrote the foreword, and that's the only text. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
