Drawing on British Airways' poster collection, this volume traces advertising design for aviation, from Edwardian air shows, through Imperial Airways in the 1930s, to BEA and BOAC in the 1950s; with reproductions of over 150 examples by artists including Frank Newbould, John Piper and Ben Nicholson.
