Lancaster JB663 King of the Air was symbolically chosen by Anthony Saunders as the subject for his stunning piece to accompany his new book.

Wings of War by Anthony Saunders - le

This superb hard back, case-bound first edition book includes 128 pages featuring many of Anthony’s superb aviation and military paintings and drawings.

Anthony Saunders has gained a reputation as one of today’s most gifted aviation and military artists. Original in concept and outstanding in the use of oil on canvas, his accomplishments not only portray a wonderful grasp of the speed and power required when depicting scenes of aerial combat but also the ability to create breathtaking sky and landscapes at the same time. Each painting featured in this beautifully illustrated new book is the result of hours of meticulous research by the artist to ensure that it is historically as well as technically correct.

 With the foreword written by the iconic veteran of the Dambusters Raid, George ‘Johnny’ Johnson (who has also signed the limited edition book and print portfolio), the artist describes each painting in fascinating detail and the result of his many talents are obvious for all to see.
 
Foreword by Dambuster veteran George ‘Johnny’ Johnson.
