The History of Aircraft Nose Art: WWI to Today
Haynes | 1991 | ISBN: 0854299343 | English | 194 Pages | PDF | 87,1 MB

Ever since pilots have been going to war they have sought to personalize their aircraft with individual markings and art - often with visually attractive results. From World War I to the Gulf conflict this book looks at the range of art depicted on aircraft. The text examines all eras of nose art, the aeroplanes the art was painted on and a special chapter devoted to interviews with surviving nose artists about their art. Also featured are the styles, markings, subjects and psychology of art and sidebars on Walt Disney, Al Capp and Milt Caniff, all of whom helped and influenced nose art.
