INDUSTRIAL / COMMERCIAL ART & DESIGN. This fascinating book examines every aspect of airline style, from the company liveries and interior designs of planes to advertising, haute couture and airborne haute cuisine. Divided into four sections covering fashion, food, interior design and identity, Airline shows how airborne culture has changed since the 1920s. The book spans the conservative to the outrageous, from saris to hotpants, from Hugh Hefner's private jet to the huge Airbus A380. A wide selection of retro styles are illustrated with illuminating archive material and images of ephemera. Airline uncovers the style, image and experience of the parallel universe that exists at 39,000 feet.

A little light on the text but a lot of good photos. Covers from the early days of air travel right up to the A380, with a strong focus on the "Golden Age" of air travel.
Worth a look for anyone interested in airlines, aviation history, or design.
