This magnificent volume celebrates Frank Wootton's career as an aviation artist. He travelled the world as an official war artist to the Royal Air Force for much of the Second World War. In 1944, he joined the Allied forces and painted the events and aircraft around him as he moved with the troops through newly liberated France and into Belgium He was then moved to Southeast Asia where he saw out the end of the war in Japan. This collection encompasses the range of Wootton's aviation art, from those early intense years right through to the present day—including his impressions of the Concorde and modern high-tech fighter planes.
This is a very decent copy with a few signs of wear. There is some sun-fading to the spine and along the top edge of the wrapper. There is a small ding to the pages' top edge but the pages are clean and the binding is secure.
