Description
From 19th-century impresarios offering rides in hot-air balloons to the romantic early days of airline travel, from the international jet set of the 1960s to the post-9/11 reassurances that air travel is safe, this book offers a visual history of air travel through the posters that have promoted it. A longtime curator of the poster collection at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, Joanne Gernstein London presents more than 100 posters in color—most of them filling a page, and most never before published—that feature barnstormers, gliders, flying boats, luxury liners, mail carriers, and jets.
