Diane Publishing Books
David Pascoe (au)
Offers a startling new account of the form of the airplane, an object that, in the course of 100 years, has developed from a flimsy contraption of wood, wire & canvas into a machine made of exotic materials whose wings can touch the edges of space. Tracing the aircraft through the 20th century, Pascoe considers it from a number of perspectives: as an inspiration for artists, architects & politicians; as a miracle of engineering; as a product of industrialized culture; as a device of military ambition; &, finally, as an instance of sublime technology. Offers not just a fresh account of aeronautical design, but also provides a cultural history of an object whose very shape contains both the dreams & nightmares of the modern age. 124 color & b&w illustrations.
