TAKING TO THE AIR: An Illustrated History of Flight

by Lily Ford

From winged medieval visionaries jumping from towers to supersonic jets and rockets landing on the moon, this is a story of dreams coming true, or spectacularly crashing to earth. It focuses on the spectators and passengers, seeing flight as a spectacle and performance, and is illustrated with woodcuts, photographs, paintings, post cards and posters from the British Library’s extensive collection.
