From early flight myths to da Vinci's flying machine, through the embroiled history of ballooning and into concepts for flying saucers and rocket planes--every page includes fascinating black and white prints from the history (real and imagined) of flight. A print from 1783 portrays a lady wearing "fashions in the balloon era" and an image from 1889 displays an imagined meeting between a human "moon tourist" and an ungainly "moon maiden." Perfect for the artist or historian.
