This looks like a must-have. Well it would were it not £35… British Aviation Posters: Art, Design and Flight by Scott Anthony and Oliver is published by Lund Humphries and rounds up some glorious images from the pioneering days of air travel.

It is a bit cheaper on Amazon http://www.amazon.co.uk/British-Aviation-Posters-Scott-Anthony/dp/1848220847/…

I’d love to fly to Le Touquet one day…

It looks at the influence of futurism, modernism, art deco and surrealism on posters which try to capture that early flying experience.
