Overview

Highflying descendants of the ship's figurehead, the colorful, non-regulation artworks that decorate the metal skins of combat aircraft are great morale boosters for pilots and crew alike. This beautifully photographed history describes and illustrates the slogans and images used in aviation art, surveying the genre from World War I to the Gulf War of 1991. It's all here: cheeky graffiti; cartoon characters "borrowed'' from Disney, Warner Bros., and Charles Schultz; animal art—from snarling tigers and fire-breathing dragons to predatory sharks and eagles; and that glorious staple of the species, the pinup! Aggressive or inspiring, humorous or cynical, tasteful or "taste-free,'' these brash decorations are represented in more than 250 vintage photos, documenting a delightful and fascinating aspect of popular military culture. 10 1/4" x 11". Color and black-and-white photos

    Excellent source for research or fun.

    Nose art helped me extensively while developing fictional names and art for my upcoming novel, Twilight Of Fury. For just reading sake, it is a excellent book!
