This collection of 200 posters from the archives of British Airways provides a stunning visual history of air travel from the earliest days to the present.
Airline posters often evoked the glamour of air travel at a time when it was a novelty and the height of sophistication. In more recent years the very best creative talents of marketeers and designers have been employed to produce some memorable modern artwork.
This richly illustrated collection is a must for anyone interested in aviation and anyone who appreciates design.
