A super stylish journey: The ultimate sourcebook for the best airline graphic designThis edition rounds up the most imaginative, influential and surprising designs of the airlines' commercial art from the "golden age of flying." It provides an unprecedented, systematic outline of the development of the visual identities of thirteen pioneering airlines, combining innovative research and stunning, museum-like presentations of hundreds of spectacular aviation posters, photos and other illustrations. Conceived by some of the world's top creative minds, such as Ivan Chermayeff, Otl Aicher, Massimo Vignelli, Academy Award winner Saul Bass, or advertising titan Mary Wells Lawrence, the designs found in the book's case studies also illustrate the shift from traditional methods of corporate design and advertising to comprehensive modern branding programs which took place in the same period.The Standard Edition contains all of the information and almost all of the images of the popular Premium Edition of Airline Visual Identity 1945-1975. Offered at a more affordable price and in a leaner format, without the numerous special colors and enhancements contained in the Premium Edition, the Standard Edition, too, was produced and designed according to highest standards, printed on top of the line paper by acclaimed Italian manufacturer Fedrigoni. Hundreds of images were reproduced and digitally restored true to the originals. Using the latest printing techniques, the book features crisp reproduction of even the smallest of details of the numerous illustrations and photos.
