The first book to be released that showcased the work of leading aviation artist Robert Taylor. The opening section gives great insight into the artist and his approach. The majority of the volume consists of reproductions of paintings and pencil drawings introduced by the artist.

Condition
Overall it is in excellent order. This book was purchased from new by the seller and has spent almost all of its life stored on a book shelf, only rarely being opened or handled. The cloth bound slip cover has evidence of very light wear that you would expect from a book stored on a shelf for many years. Inside the book is excellent with little sign of ever being opened and read. The top right hand corner of the pages have a slight creasing, probably the result of a mild impact at some point but overall this is in as good condition as could reasonably be expected for a book that is nearly 30 years old.

Colour plates: 39
Pages: 128
